Zamakona Yards delivered the vessel “Ocean Falcon” at its facilities in Pasajes, San Sebastián.
The ship is construction (C-735) and is the last of three signed with the Norwegian shipping company Atlantic Offshore A.S., all with Havyard HY820 design. Its sisters, Ocean Osprey (C-721) and Ocean Marlin (C-722) were the first and second respectively of the contract with this prestigious customer, being all pretty similar, with some technical variations between them.
The main aim of the ship is to provide prompt attention to emergencies on oil rigs, being specially adapted to the harsh conditions of the North Sea.
This is a Field Support Vessel (FSV) and incorporates the latest technologies including systems for towing operations with a pulling capacity of 65 tons. With 66.80 meters length and 16 meters beam, it has the capacity to rescue 300 people. It has 2 MAN main engines with a power of 1935 kW each.
It sails now towards Aberdeen where its baptism ceremony will be held on the 29th of May and has already a contract for this year of 5 + 5 years with Shell, UK.
We want to take this opportunity to once again thank our distinguished customer Atlantic Offshore for trusting our work.
