Austal Offshore Express 57
In November 2016, Austal delivered one 57.6m High Speed Large Crew Transfer Vessel for Swire Pacific Offshore (SPO).
The advanced, multi-task crew boat is capable of quickly and safely transferring 90 offshore personnel plus cargo at up to 40 knots and shall be wholly constructed at Austal’s Philippines shipyard.
In addition to a large, 200sqm cargo deck (allowing up to 100 tonnes of cargo to be transported), the vessel features DP2 ‘Dynamic Positioning’ that allows stable, heave-compensated walk-to-work transfer of personnel to offshore facilities. The vessel also has search and rescue capability, with an on-board Fast Rescue Craft (FRC) available for launch quickly when necessary.
