Christening ceremony of the multipurpose Platform Supply Vessel

The next christening ceremony of the multipurpose Platform Supply Vessel was held in Remontowa Shipbuilding SA on Saturday, 28th of September 2013. The vessel was christened „HIGHLAND GUARDIAN”.

It was already fifth vessel built in our shipyard for one of the most important offshore fleet Owner operating in the North Sea. The vessel, like previous ones, is designed for supporting sea offshore industry.

Three years ago two modern AHTS vessels for anchor handling and rig towing, with significant load capability for rig and offshore platform supply left our shipyard.

Two months ago first from the just completed series – vessel „HIGHLAND DEFENDER” was delivered to the Owner. The next one „HIGHLAND CHIEFTAIN” was handed over some weeks ago.

All three vessels delivered this year to the Owner were designed by Polish MMC Ship Design & Marine Consulting Ltd. office from Gdynia. The vessels, built under supervision of American Bureau of ShippingClassification Society operate under the ENVIRO Notation. They have received the so-called GREEN PASSPORT as their structure comprises no materials harmful to human health or natural environment. The vessels are characterized by modern technology, particularly in the range of propulsion and automation.

“HIGHLAND GUARDIAN” will soon start servicing offshore platforms operating in North Sea.

REMONTOWA SHIPBUILDING S.A. is one of the most appreciated shipyards building fully equipped vessels for offshore industry. It is already sixth vessel which left our shipyard this year.
