As the Dubai shoreline has grown, so also
has the Government's need to maintain
an effective capability to respond to oil
spills. Consequently, the Dubai Police
proceeded with its "Phase 1" development
of the Oil Spill Response Plan 2008 by
commissioning Dubai Shipbuilding &
Engineering (DSBE) to construct a
33-metre OSR (Oil Spill Response) vessel
-- delivered in September this year.
DSBE was handed an initial criteria that
included low freeboard, shallow draught,
ten tonnes of dispersant and a built-in
spray system as well as an overall length of
minimum 25-28 metres.
DSBE then commissioned a local
consultancy -- Navispec -- for the
development of the design according to
RINA classification society rules.
As a result, a catamaran hull-type was
adopted to deliver maximum clear deck
space -- some 80m2 --for oil spill operations.
Further, the vessel was to have a response
speed of over 12 knots, shallow draught and
low freeboard for fast oil spill dispersal
boom operation and freedom of arm
movement. The vessel was also designed to
be highly manoeuvrable when carrying out
oil recovery operations utilising the boom
and skimmers, with a twin screw propulsion
system, a single hard chine steel hull and a
complement of up to seven personnel.
With an overall length of 33.4 metres on
a ten-metre moulded beam, 'Yaze 1' has a
moulded depth of 2.5 metres and a design
draught of 1.5 metres. The vessel displaces
1,176 tonnes and has a deadweight of 25
tonnes, gross tonnage measured at 165GRT
and net tonnage of 49NRT.
The vessel is powered by twin Caterpillar
3412 diesel main engines, each rated at
537kW, with power transferred through twin
ZF 2020 gearboxes, driving twin fixed-pitch
Mikado propellers, giving a top speed of 13.2
knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots, with
an endurance of three days.
The vessel is equipped with fully
air-conditioned accommodation for seven
arranged in one single, one twin-berth and
one quadruple-berth cabin.
The vessel carries a deck cargo of ten
tonnes with a fuel oil capacity of 7,000 litres
and a freshwater capacity of 7,100 litres.
Established in 1997 with a few technical
and skilled personnel on a small waterfront
within the Dubai creek, Dubai Shipbuilding
& Engineering has evolved into one of the
prime shipbuilders / repairers within the
United Arab Emirates.
With a decade of experience, the
company has successfully built, repaired,
converted and delivered varying types of
seagoing vessels including general cargo
vessels, accommodation barges, oil tankers,
anchor handling tugs, offshore supply
vessels, tugs, landing craft, fishing boats,
workboats, oil pollution control boats,
specialised vessels and steel yachts.
The company currently has three AHTS
vessels on order.
