Breeze Ship Design has recently been awarded a contract with Fujian Mawei for the design of a multipurpose offshore support vessel (MPSV).
Breeze’s Z 4423 MPSV design has been designed to support operational modes demanded in complex offshore energy applications. The 88-meter-long vessel is fitted with battery hybrid propulsion, a moon pool and accommodation for 60 people. According to the company, this design provides the flexibility to perform tasks within different offshore segments, such as conventional platform supply service, light construction work, geoseismic and offshore wind.
The new MPSV will be built at the Chinese Fujian Mawei shipyard, with scheduled delivery in the fourth quarter of 2025. Norwegian-registered Hercules Supply is behind the order and has secured options for two further ships, with the delivery time for the optional vessels in approximately three-month intervals after ship number one. The first vessel will be operated commercially and technically by the Fletcher Group.
Ove Wilhemsen, CEO of Breeze Ship Design, said, “We are honored to be working with Fujian Mawei and Fletcher Group on this exciting project. Our team is dedicated to delivering a state-of-the-art vessel that combines exceptional performance, versatility and safety.”
