In the absence of significant demand for large high speed ferries, Incat Tasmania marks their entry into the offshore industry with the receipt of their latest newbuild order for a 70 meter crew support vessel from Caspian Marine Services.
According to information sent to us from gCaptain contributor Justin Merrigan, this newbuild is scheduled to be delivered at the end of September 2014 from their yard in Hobart, Tasmania to Baku, Azerbaijan via the Volga-Don Canal.
Incat Chairman Robert Clifford said “At 70 metres length and 30 knot speed we expect this will be the largest fast crew transport vessel operating in the global oil industry and Incat envisage an expanding market for this type of vessel.”
Incat’s shipyard is located on Prince of Wales Bay at Derwent Park near Hobart, Tasmania, and incorporates more than 70,000 square meters of undercover production halls, with two dry-dock areas capable of accommodating up to six vessels under construction.
