Spliethoff DP2 MPP pair is now complete
Following the delivery of MV Brouwersgracht, the first of two Spliethoff DP2 B-type vessels, in February, the company has now completed the pair with the delivery of MV Bloemgracht.
The MPP newbuild has been delivered from Fuzhou Mawei shipyard completing the series of two identical DP2 B-type vessels. The company dubbs them the next-generation offshore supply vessels with a number of versatile characteristics that make them unique in the market.
These vessels combine the intake of a multi-purpose vessel with a superior DP2 station-keeping ability, making them ideal for supplying large volumes and weights of cargo directly offshore. To obtain fast, safe and efficient loading and discharge of pipes both on and offshore, the vessels are equipped with a removable automated pipe handling gantry crane.
Besides, the vessels are equipped with two Huisman 500 mt Heavy Lift Mast cranes, making them also suitable for heavy lift transportation and offshore installation.
Brouwersgracht and Bloemgracht are already booked for their first challenging pipe supply and offshore installation jobs until April 2024, giving them the chance to do what they are designed for right from the start.
Both vessels will be technically and commercially operated by Spliethoff Group sister companies Spliethoff and BigLift Shipping, providing customers with engineered and tailor-made solutions in the various project phases.
