Boa IMR AS (a Boa Offshore AS subsidiary) has entered into a shipbuilding contract to build a Light Construction and Inspection Maintenance and Repair (IMR) Vessel with Noryards Fosen AS.
The design is developed in close cooperation between BOA and Noryards focusing on future operational demands under challenging conditions and highest safety and environmental standards.
The new-building will be one of the most energy-efficient vessel of its class, utilizing a number of features that contribute to optimal operational performance, low emissions and reduced fuel consumption.
In addition to state-of-the-art fuel-efficiency, the vessel will have an impressive free deck space of 1500 m2 with uniform deck strength of 15t/m2, 2 AHC offshore subsea cranes (150t + 30t) to 3000 m, 2 WROV’s to 3000 m in hangars, moonpool and helideck.
The vessel will have a high crewing/operator capacity relative to its size with a total of 125 beds. Optimal comfort for crew and operators will be ensured, including modern facilities for execution of effective IMR operations.
The vessel’s overall length will be 108 m with a beam of 24 m and class notation includes Ice-1A, Well Stimulation and LFL.
The yard owner Calexco S.a.r.l. will participate as an equity partner and this together with the payment schedule means limited need for additional equity from Boa Offshore AS before delivery in Q1 2017.
The vessel will be under Boa Offshore AS management and will be chartered to Boa Marine Services Inc.
