Singapore’s Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO) reported it has a new fast support intervention vessel, 42-m Pelican Calm, with a passenger capacity of 80 and speed of 31 knots, according to a social media post by the company
Built in 2016 by Penguin International, Pelican Calm is a Flex 42X-series crewboat, with an overall length of 42 m, beam of 8 m, depth of 3.98 m and design draught of 1.6 m. Propulsion for the aluminium-hulled vessel is supplied by three Caterpillar C32 Acert, Tier II main engines, each rated at 1,450 bhp at 2,300 rpm, driving three fixed-pitch propellers via reduction gearing.
With a clear deck area of 110 m2, Pelican Calm has a deck cargo capacity of 60 tonnes.
With more than 70 crewboats, MEO controls over 100 vessels, including anchor handling tug supply vessels, seismic vessels, subsea support vessels, platform supply vessels, multi-cats, tugs, coastal survey vessels and accommodation work barges (AWBs).
One of those AWBs, Miclyn Constructor 1, has returned to the Petronas-operated Angsi complex following a major refurbishment and overhaul of its main systems and machinery, and restoration of its accommodation areas, MEO reported in a separate social media post. The vessel kicked off a topside maintenance campaign using a 25-m gangway to connect the vessel and platform at the Angsi complex, one of the largest oil and gas facilities in Malaysia.
Operated in west Malaysia for the most of 2019, Malaysia-flag Miclyn Constructor 1 completed its 10-year special survey docking in Batam during December and January. While in the shipyard, Miclyn Constructor 1 underwent a significant refurbishment and overhaul of its deck equipment, mooring system and towing system. The deck, hull and accommodation space were completely blasted and painted. Restoration work was also completed on cabins, bathrooms, galley, mess room, changing rooms and lockers.
The vessel’s engines and other auxiliaries underwent major maintenance, with change outs of piping systems in the engineroom and accommodation areas.
Built in 2010, Miclyn Constructor 1 has an overall length of 100 m, beam of 30.5 m, depth of 6.5 m, with accommodation for 308. The AWB is fitted with an eight-point mooring system, with four double-drum Amhoist winches, helideck, pedestal crane with a capacity of 68 tonnes and an auxiliary crane with a capacity of 10 tonnes.
