Displacing helicopters by reducing the roll

A new supply partnership will see Strategic Marine’s new 42m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) fitted with a class-leading gyrostabiliser from VEEM Marine.

Under the agreement, VEEM Marine will supply its class leading VG140SD Gyrostabiliser for installation on the Aluminium 42m Gen 4 Fast Crew Boat FCB which will significantly reduce the vessel’s rolling motion by up to 80%; increasing safety and efficiency during personnel transfer and cargo operations.

The gyro when coupled with a motion compensated gangway enhances the level of safety for personnel transfers to an offshore installation and will maximise operability.

The delivery of the vessel, developed in collaboration with Southerly Designs and scheduled for the end of Q12023, is particularly relevant for the aging Southeast Asian crew boat fleet that is primed for renewal. The industry is continually on the lookout for looking for safer and more cost-effective solutions to personnel transfers, many of which are currently carried out via helicopter.

“We are proud to be working with a number of industry leaders that recognise the most efficient hull form is a monohull vessel, which can produce excellent operational results when combined with a VEEM Marine gyrostabiliser. In particular, we look forward to working with Strategic Marine in a joint marketing effort and conducting demonstration trials. Together we will prove to the industry that with the use of gyrostabilisers there is no location where helicopters cannot be displaced for more cost effective and flexible vessel solutions.” comments Mr Brett Silich, Global Commercial Manager.

Mr Hans Randklev, Strategic’s General Manager, Commercial commented “This latest order further cements Strategic Marine’s ambition to be an innovative and leading builder of Fast Crew Boats & Crew Transfer Vessel for the global energy industry. Just as with other areas of this vessel design and optimisation, the installation of the VEEM Marine gyrostabiliser will enable our customers to achieve industry-leading operational uptime without having to compromise fuel efficiency, comfort or safety”
