Oct 5, 2010

In September, Cheoy Lee Shipyards handed over the third in a series of four Multi-Purpose offshore commercial craft. Designed by Wartsila Ship Design Singapore Pte, the operational requirements of this vessel will require anchor handling, tanker handling and berthing, towing barges and rigs, maintenance and pollution control, supply duties and fire fighting capabilities. Posh Pahlawan is of all steel construction and is capable of carrying out all of these duties. The vessel is constructed to ABS class, with the notation +A1, (E), +AMS, Towing Service. The final delivery from the batch is scheduled for November 2010.

The vessel is powered by two Yanmar 6EY26 diesels, each developing 1920 Kw @750 RPM, driving two Berg BCP690, 2650mm dia. propellers in nozzles via Reintjes LAF 2346L gearboxes with a 3.5:1 reduction ratio. Maneuverability is enhanced by a 320kW Nakashima TCT-105 electric bow thruster. Three Caterpillar 350kW three phase C18 generators supply all onboard power requirements via Teresaki switch and distribution boards, with an 82kW, air cooled Caterpillar C4.4 serving as a stand-by. 500m3 of fuel and capacity for 240 tonnes of potable water allows for extended range.

The vessel accommodates a crew of 30, in six 4-man cabins, two 2-man cabins and single cabins for the captain and chief engineer on the forecastle deck level. The elevated bridge has excellent all round visibility, with both forward and aft facing control stations, each with a Bostrom helm seat. Steering is by Jastram, and a full array of navigational equipment is primarily from Furuno.

Towing gear is exclusively from Plimsoll in Singapore, including the anchor handling/towing winch, anchor windlass/towing winch, two rope storage reels, shark jaw, towing pins, tugger winches and capstans. The deck crane for lifting the portside rescue boat is from Palfinger.
