Brazilian shipbuilder ETP Engenharia in Rio de Janeiro has
delivered the final six vessels of a 12-ship order for Baru
Offshore.

The six newest 48-meter DNV Classed DP-1 vessels - Baru Serrana,
Baru Tesoro, Baru Sinu, Baru Sirius, Baru Taurus and Baru Vega -
were delivered over the last several months to Baru Offshore, a
subsidiary of INTERTUG, for charter with Petrobras.

The vessels' designer Incat Crowther said the vessels are
optimized to comply with the Petrobras UT4000 Fast Supply Vessel
specification. Liquid capacities include 42,000 liters of ship's
fuel, 90,000 liters of cargo fuel, 10,000 liters of ship's water
and 88,000 liters of cargo fresh water.

Each vessel is equipped with an aft cargo deck with 225 square
meters of usable area rated for 3 metric tons per square meter
and a total capacity of 250 metric tons of deck cargo.

An additional 30 squarte meters of cargo area is provided inside
the main deck cabin, allowing for carriage of items out of the
elements, such as food, medical supplies, small tools and similar
type cargoes. This space has the ability to be reconfigured for
the carriage of 60 offshore personnel. Also housed in the main
deck cabin are wet room and laundry facilities.

Six cabins accommodating 11crew, as well as a mess, galley and
bathrooms are provided below deck of each vessel.

Each vessel is powered by four Cummins QSK 50 main engines, each
rated at 1,800hp at 1,900 rpm. Propulsion is by way of
fixed-pitched propellers, while two 150 hp electric tunnel bow
thrusters enhance maneuverability for the DP classed vessels. The
vessels have a service speed of 21 knots.
