DESIGNED FOR SUCCESS
Our logistic support ships are designed and built to classification society rules. They incorporate military standards where appropriate. Our portfolio encompasses a broad spectrum of vessels displacing up to 30,000 tonnes and with lengths extending to 200 meters. All comply with current environmental standards, including International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirements applicable to tankers.
Of all-steel construction, NVL Logistic Support Ships are built to ensure safe and manoeuvrable operation during complex replenishment activities. Exemplary twin diesel engines are specified to place redundancy at the heart of the propulsion system. These are linked to shaft lines fitted with controllable pitch propellers. Maximum speeds in the order of 18 to 20 knots are achievable. The possibility of single-shaft operation provides excellent economy, with range extending up to 10,000 nautical miles. Endurance amounts to 30 days or more, allowing long-distance deployments to be maintained.
