Skipsteknisk designs advanced research vessel for Chilean Navy

Skipsteknisk AS has entered into contract with Asmar Shipbuilding,Chile, for the design of a 71.3m advanced Fishery and Oceanographic Research Vessel of ST-367 design for the Chilean Navy.

Skipsteknisk won the design contract in close international competition.

The vessel is to be built according to ICES Cooperate Report no. 209 describing strict underwater radiated noise levels. This, together with the most advanced acoustic scientific equipment, enables the vessel to conduct acoustic surveys to the highest standards available in the world today.

The vessel is arranged for a number of fishery and oceanographic research operations and will operate in the Pacific Ocean offshore Chile.

For Skipsteknisk this is another contract for design of an ICES compliant vessel. Only a very limited number of research vessels in the world meet this standard and among these are the Norwegian G.O. Sars and the British James Cook - both designed by Skipsteknisk.
