Prominent Seawork supporter Alnmaritec has recently completed the build of two hose and line handling boats at its yard in Blyth, Northumberland. Both vessels are destined initially for shipyards in Singapore and one was completed in just 16 weeks.

Hull numbers 158 and 161 are of the highly successful Wave Handler 900 class and have been supplied complete with a twin arm davit system. The primary role for each is line and hose handling duties. They have a small wheelhouse forward and a bow access arrangement for personnel transfers. The aft deck is fitted with a working platform at the stern to facilitate hose/line handling with a hydraulic capstan built into a plinth on the deck and a towing point with a remotely operated quick release hook. 

Completion of these boats sees Alnmaritec reach yet another milestone as Managing Director Chris Millman explains: “FPSO N’Goma represents the 25th Wave Handler class boat that we have completed and I couldn’t be happier with the result. We have developed the design of this class of boat over a number of years to the point where we have seen it become the industry standard for this type of work. I’m extremely proud of the team for hitting the target, especially when you take into consideration the additional work and learning which had to take place in order to fit the ATEX certified systems.”
