Innovative multi-purpose vessel from Fast Offshore Supply12.02.2015
After experiencing great success with their previous Servogear installations, Fast Offshore Supply PTE LTD in Singapore has chosen Servogear Ecoflow PropulsorTM for their three 60 meters multi-purpose vessels.
Feathering position – 25 tons reduced drag
The order consist in 12 complete Servogear Ecoflow PropulsorTM systems, with four in-line installations on each vessel. Different from the six earlier vessels, the two centre propellers are able to turn into feathering position (scroll down for video). This will reduce the drag with 25 tons when running at 15 knots, resulting in a significantly improved fuel economy in transit/steam.
We believe these multi-purpose vessels will be some of the most versatile vessels ever built. This contract represent a great development within fuel economy, making the vessels even more attractive in the market. Fast Offshore Supply is an innovative ship-owner, always looking for new and better solutions. They live up to their vision “to be the forefront in development and leading operator of fast multipurpose vessel serving the oil and gas industry globally”. We are proud of the excellent cooperation between Servogear and FOS, says Otto Pedersen, Sales and Marketing Director in Servogear.
