Watch the launching of the vessel “Esnaad 221” at Shipyard De Hoop Foxhol.
The Esnaad 221 has a length of 65 metres and width of 15.8 metres. It is the first of a series of ten vessels for which Eekels has been commissioned.
Eekels provided complete electrical installation, including the coupling switches, bridge control panels, the alarm and monitoring system and all frequency controls including engines for the 2 propulsion propellers and the 3 bow thrusters.
The Esnaad 221 will be built as a “design of the future”, complying with the highest international classification standards with respect to both operational as well as environmental objectives. The ten vessels will be deployed in the oil and gas fields in the Arab Gulf and will be operated by ESNAAD, an ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) subsidiary.
The expected delivery of the Esnaad 221 is mid April 2015.
