570 November 2009
If there is a slowing in the marine industries no one told the people at ASL Marine in Singapore. Among other projects the shipyard is building a series of Roto Tugs, a series of large PSVs and a 60-meter dive support vessel. (Hotip to come).
In November ASL was nearing completion of another in their series of diesel-electric emergency vessels for the Danish firm Esvagt. These spectacular red boats with their five Cummins KTA19D powered 485 kW generators were described in Cummins Hotip#462 (January 2008 www.haig-brown.com) To see other standby vessels in the ESVAGT fleet go to: www.esvagt.dk/Default.aspx?ID=2
This series of vessels carry C-names. Earlier vessels included the Esvagt Carina, Cassipeta, Carpathia, Champion, Caroline, Contender, Cobra and Castor. On her raised fo’s’sle the new vessel carries the name Esvagt Capri in readiness for her official naming ceremony.
For a general arrangement drawing see the earlier Cummins Hotip#462.
