Last month, Hornbeck Offshore’s multi-purpose supply vessel HOS Warland was launched from Eastern Shipbuilding’s Allanton shipyard near Panama City, Florida. The shipbuilder released the following video this weekend of the launch:
The VARD-designed, ABS-classed vessel measures 302 feet in length by 76 feet at the beam. She is 12 feet wider than other platform supply vessels in her category which enables her to have sufficient stability to operate a Macgregor 250 ton active heave compensated offshore crane. She also features a moon pool and can carry up to two work-class ROVs.
The vessel is powered by four Caterpillar 3516c diesel engines which drive two Schottel SRP 2020 Z-drives, a Rolls-Royce TCNS 73CP swing down azimuthing thruster, and two Schottel STT3 FP bow thrusters.
The HOS Warland and her sister vessel HOS Woodland are scheduled for delivery in September 2015.
