Innovation and Diversity

in Marine Design

Anchor-Handling Tug/Supply Vessels

We have developed AHTS and OSV designs for services as diverse as the Canadian Arctic, Sakhalin, the Caspian Sea and Papua New Guinea. The result is the Beaufort Series of AHTS/OSV’s highlighted below.

The new Beaufort series of icebreaking Offshore Support Vessel designs (named in homage to Canada’s northern sea) have been developed in response to recent specific project demands around the world for icebreaking offshore support vessels of the highest standards. (See also our RAmpage series of offshore support tugs)
