Norwegian Rig Shuttle has entered another contract with Maritime Partner AS in Aalesund for the delivery of a new fisheries inspection vessel for the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries.

The new boat, which is an ALUSAFE 2000 Multi-Purpose Vessel (MPV), will be sister ship to the RIND LEXO which is due for delivery to Maritime Partner in December 2017.

"The boat is designed specifically to the company's requirements and to meet the challenges of operating under the harsh and demanding conditions 365 days a year,” said Kjetil Hantveit, general manager of Norwegian Rig Shuttle.

“Combined with the right choice of equipment, materials and technical solutions, we believe this will be the best boat possible for the tasks of the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries for many years to come.”

Robust design

The Alusafe 2000 MPV will operate primarily along the Norwegian coast within the four-nautical-mile fishing zone and certified for coastal voyages.

It is designed and built on a proven hull that has been used on a number of boats within rescue and patrol missions that are suitable for both open sea and coastal waters.

The boat is well equipped with a specially designed MOB/work boat, ROV, drone, night camera, heating cables in deck and hand rails, crane, net hauler and multiple boarding stations.

Because The Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries operates in an area that extends along the entire coast from the Oslo Fjord to the Varangerfjord, it has been designed for all-weather operation.
