The “NP 459”, built in 2016, converted in 2019, is a high standard uniquely versatile multi-purpose accommodation pontoon, of 82,50 x 27,00 x 6,00 meter. It is a heavy constructed barge with lots of facilitates, an excellent stability data and the highest QHSE standards.
The “NP 459” offers SPS-classed, air-conditioned accommodation for up to 60 people, which can be upgraded to 96 P.O.B. upon special request, plus four offices, mess room, recreation room, fitness room, coffee corner and more.
The “NP 459’s” 60 tons CT 8-point mooring system in combination with its spacious and strong – 20 tons per m² – working deck makes it a versatile and predictable platform. After it first assignment, its station-keeping capability will be further enhanced with the addition of a DP-II system with retractable thrusters for projects that require the maintenance of a dynamic position.
Other features include the ability to mobilize the pontoon with project-specific equipment such as fixed and crawler cranes, carousels up to 24 meters diameter, boat landings and many other associated and maritime related equipment, to make the pontoon suitable for a wide range of operations such as offshore construction, salvage, renewables support, cable lay/repair and general transport of up to 4,000 tons in total. Its size and specification make it ideal for a wide range of offshore as well as coastal projects.
The “NP 459” will be converted to DP-II vessel, as assisting propulsion with retractable thrusters, after the present charter (Q1, 2020).
