Building up stock

Construction of a new 20 metre Multi Purpose Vessel suitable for a range of applications will start in June of this year.

Manor Marine has committed to the build at the company’s fabrication and engineering facility in Portland, Dorset.

Focussed on the offshore renewables industry, the vessel is designed for multi-purpose uses. The vessel will be suitable for dive support, subsea cable support, towage, buoyage maintenance, marine civil engineering and dredge support. Construction is due to start in June 2022, utilising a keel which was laid in 2020.

Constructed using all welded steel, the Multi Purpose Vessel will be of single chine construction and will feature a fully fitted out wheelhouse, deck cargo carrying capacity of 20 tonnes, estimated bollard pull of 12 tonnes and a working deck area totalling 70m2. An Effer 850.8 deck crane will be installed with a lifting capacity of 2.4 tonnes at 20 metres.

At 20 metres in length, the vessel will have an approximate maximum speed of 10 knots, achieved with two Volvo Penta D13-MH marine propulsion engines; the vessel will be suitable for operation in coastal waters (up to 20 miles from the shore) and the craft will be built in accordance with Lloyd's Register Regulations and to MCA Workboat Code CAT 2.

Leif Cooper, Managing Director at Manor Marine commented, “This will be the second vessel of this class built by Manor Marine and will be constructed in our dedicated steel working facility. It will be built allowing for optional crew accommodation and various deck winches.”

The Multi Purpose Vessel is scheduled to be completed in early 2023 and will held as stock upon delivery.
