The latest offerings from Pacific
Radiance slated for delivery in 2010 will
be the "Crest Odyssey" series of
Saturation Diving Support Vessels.
The vessels, classed with ASS, are designed
as fu11y dynamically positioned class 2 (DP2)
Diving Support Vessel (DS) for unrestricted
service in subsea operation and maintenance.
They feature enhanced capability for
saturation diving with a state of the art,
12-person single bell integrated saturation
system including one self-propelled
hyperbaric lifeboat, allowing maximum
operating depth of up to 300 metres.
With an overall length of 82.20 metres on
a beam of 20.40 metres, the vessels have a
depth of seven metres and draught of 5.50
metres with scantling draught of 5.80 metres.
Accommodation is catered for 150
personnel consisting of ten single-person
cabins, eight two-person cabins, 31
four-person cabins and various offices
allocated for operation and survey purposes.
Deadweight at design draught is
approximately 2,700 tonnes with a large
clear deck area of approximately 800m2
with deck load capacity of five tonnes per
square metre to accommodate contractor
applications. The vessels also feature a
helideck suitable for the operation of Super
Puma and Sikorsky 92 type helicopters.
The vessels are powered by twin
Caterpillar 3516 main engines, each rated
at 1,921kW at 1,600rpm driving twin Berg
controllable pitch propellers and equipped
with Becker high lift rudders.
Designed maximum speed is 12 knots.
Auxiliary power is supplied by six
Caterpillar generator sets, each developing
1,200kW. Backup power includes a single
Caterpillar generator developing 500kW
which acts as a harbour generator, one
Caterpillar generator developing 700kW as
an emergency generator catering for the
saturation diving system, and a single
Caterpillar generator developing 180kW as
shipboard emergency generator.
One shaft generator developing 800kW
PTO from the starboard side main engine
caters for the entire shipboard loads during
voyage. Three Kawasaki electric-driven
tunnel bow thrusters and one electrically
driven stern thruster, each rated at 12 tonnes
thrust, enhance vessel manoeuvrability.
The vessels are also fitted with a single
SMST 100-tonne knuckle boom-type subsea
crane with a heave compensated system
incorporated and capable of serving up to
1,000-metre water depth for subsea
operations with both main and auxiliary
hoist rated with man-riding capabilities.
The Kongsberg K-Pos DPS2 system fitted
onboard includes various reference units
consisting of three gyro-compasses, two
DPGS units, one Hipap 500, Taut Wire Wk
15/300 and a Radius 1000 unit. A
four-point mooring system supplied by
Titan Oflakore Equipment, Singapore
provides extra flexibility in the field.
The first unit of the series, 'Crest
Odyssey 1' is scheduled for completion
around the third quarter of 2010.
