Expansion of activities
Severn Offshore has been active in the offshore energy industry for over five years. Due to its successful crew transfer operations, the marine service provider is now expanding to multi-purpose workboats. After careful consideration Severn Offshore has decided to add a EuroCarrier 2209 to its fleet.
The EuroCarrier 2209 is a medium-sized workboat, which has proven its capabilities and strengths throughout the years. Operators around the world, from Canada to Scotland, are using the powerful and compact vessel for a variety of operations, including dredging, aquaculture support and anchor handling.
Multi-purpose by heart
Neptune Marine delivers custom workboats to its clients, as it is also the case with the Severn Supporter. To comply with Severn Offshore requirements, the EuroCarrier has been expanded with a 25 tons A-frame, including dredging plough. Additionally, the standard specification of the vessel covers all required equipment, including a Heila HLRM 140-4S deck crane, 50 tons anchor handling winch and comfortable accommodation for 4 people.
The Severn Supporter is equipped with 2 Caterpillar engines to be able to deliver a bollard pull of approximately 15 tons.
A series of Dutch quality vessels
“We were keen to have a vessel, which is entirely built in the Netherlands. As one of the leading Dutch shipbuilders, Neptune Marine could clearly offer what we were looking for” says Ryan Hopkins, managing director of Severn Offshore Services. “Throughout the project, Neptune Marine has been very supportive to include our requirements in the vessel to deliver a custom design for our operations.”
“Neptune Marine is proud to deliver yet another EuroCarrier 2209. Over the years, more than thirty EuroCarriers have been built in the Netherlands, whereby Neptune Marine strives to continuously develop its vessels, in order to exceed the industry’s standards” concludes Neptune
