THE OSV DEVELOPED BY TECHNOLOGY AND EXPERIENCE OF THE JAPANESE SHIP MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT INDUSTRIES
Outstanding Features of the OSV
Optimized for the operation at higher temperature, humidity and moderate sea states in shallow water, as opposed to the North Sea environment, as well as achieved affordable price by increasing cost effectiveness
Higher reliable and save-energy Japanese equipment to be fully applied
Eight packages are system-integrated, which sumplify shipbuilding process including engineering and ensure higher performance of the OSV.
Global service stations established by Japanese Manufacturers can be used at emergency conditions as well as regular maintenance.
ABS has reviewed the General Arrangement and Midship Section of this project “JAPAN PACKAGE FOR MULTI PURPOSE SUPPLY VESSEL” and granted “Approval in Principle ( AIP )” to the concept of the design for the reviewed items under this project.
OSV owners and operators pointed out that prevailing design of OSVs might have adopted higher specifications assuming operations in the North Sea, resulting in higher building cost.
In our study, design and specifications of the OSV are optimized to suit the operation at higher temperature, humidity and moderate sea states in shallow water, different from the North Sea environment, employing reliable and save-energy Japanese ship machinery and equipment, which have been proven on merchant vessels,
JSMEA may provide drawings and documents free of charge to owners who are interested in the construction of this OSV subject to a certain cooperation agreement.
The OSV basic engineering and packaging project has been studied to contribute to the development mainly for the global offshore market in line with the policy of the JSMEA Offshore Development Strategy Review Board in corporation with 30 member companies for a couple of years in 2018 and 2019, which has been supported by Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japanese Government ( MILT ) as well as basic drawings were made in cooperation with Shipbuilding Research Center of Japan ( SRC ).
Upon completion of ABS final approval of the further submitted drawings, the OSV design will be eligible for ABS classification of A1, Offshore Support Vessel ( FFV 1 ) , AMS, DPS-2, SPS, UWILD.
