The Netherlands: Multi Purpose Tender SC Amethyst …

first_imgSima Charters, March 7, 2014 zoom The Dutch company Sima Charters successfully delivered a Multi Purpose 66ft Tender, christened SC Amethyst. Built by Sima Charters and Shipinstall, the tender features design and naval architecture by Vripack and is engineered for countless activities in the offshore sector.The SC Amethyst is a heavy duty pilot/service boat, designed for multiple purposes such as crew transport and supplies to and from ships in anchor zones or offshore wind farms. She is employable as a general crewboat, windfarm survice vessel (WFSV), guard vessel, pilot boat, patrol vessel, survey vessel, rescue tender, etc.The Sima yellow eye-catcher is provided with a full out Lloyd’s Register classified workboat construction with professional systems which make this ship suitable for safe operations in tough circumstances. Especially because she is extremely comfortable going to sea, as a result of which she can still function when many other similar sized ships have to pull out.This high comfort level is due to an innovative lines plan and the application of a Sea-Keeper stabilization system which guarantees a comfortable ship motion at lower speed and in stationary modus. Besides that the twin Volvo Penta IPS propulsion units make this full aluminum lady by far the most fuel efficient, compared to all the competing vessels that are allowed in the same working area, burning only 200 liters of fuel at 21 knots.Peter Bouma, Naval Architect at Vripack explains; “The Amethyst has really exceeded our detailed CFD analyses and efficiency calculations. We are very proud of how she performs. Her ship motion levels are remarkably low and because of the high efficiency she is very fuel efficient and thus cost efficient to run. Based on the facts this bruiser is considered the crème de la crème of workboats today. It simply doesn’t get any better than this”.The SC Amethyst has a very practical size and economical layout, she can be considered a newborn vintage tender that has been designed like a smooth custom made gentleman’s suit, but with many integrated gadgets. The Navigation equipment is top of the bill with two radars, SAR finder, computer plotters, AIS, NAVTEX and much more.“The SC Amethyst is equipped with an advanced shock absorbing bow fender designed to guarantee a constant and safe connection to all wind turbines or boat-landings on other structures. The railings are easily removable which allows ship to ship transfers via the side. The recessed fenders alongside the tender protect the other vessel and its ladder when mooring at sea, while the walk-around-lifeline prevents passengers from falling over board”, Ruud Lievaart, CEO of Sima Charters BV, explains.
