Island Offshore Management AS took delivery of its 21’st vessel the Island Contender. The vessel of UT 776 CDG design, equipped for operating on gas alone, was delivered from STX OSV Brevik in Norway.
Island Contender is the sistership of Island Crusader delivered in May.
This is one of the first offshore vessel to feature lean burn gas engines as main engines. As a result Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions will be reduced by about 90 percent while Sulphur Oxide (SOx) emissions and particulates will be negligible. CO2 emissions will also be significantly reduced.
The vessel is also equipped with two diesel engines for periods when it needs to operate away from gas supply.
