Singapore’s ST Engineering’s marine arm has developed a design for a 76-m dual-fuel LNG catamaran fast crew boat for the offshore oil and gas and renewables markets
Collaboratively developed with Australian naval architect and marine engineering firm Incat Crowther, the fast crew boat has a wave-piercing semi-SWATH hull form, allowing the vessel to transit at high speed with low hull motions. For crew comfort, the fast crew boat is fitted with a ride control system comprising a pair of forward-mounted active T-foils and aft-mounted active Interceptors. These technologies enable comfortable high-speed transit and provide a platform to operate a broad range of walk-to-work solutions from its rear deck, when coupled with the advanced dynamic positioning class 2 system.
Propulsion power is supplied by four 10-cylinder dual-fuel engines that drive four waterjets, providing a maximum speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 34 knots.
The interior has two classes of seating for 150 passengers and can comfortably house 30 passengers in single cabins.
“Committed towards green and sustainable shipping, we have set a new standard of personnel movement and ensured multi-market use for both our oil and gas and offshore wind clients,” said ST Engineering marine sector senior vice president, marketing and business development Michael Bell.
