ASIS Boats is proud to announce the delivery of three 8-meter Offshore RHIB Boats to Saipem. These RHIB Boats will be operating offshore of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Custom-built to the client’s specifications, these three Professional Oil and Gas RHIBs are constructed to suit their needs and to match the requirements of the operating environment.
These 8-meter Professional RHIBs are built with Fiber Glass Extra Reinforced hulls & 1670 Dtex hypalon Hyb Foam® tube, which is a special ASIS hybrid tube, comprised of a combination of closed cells memory foam and air; allowing redundancy and reducing the service requirement in order to increase productivity and minimize down time.
Before delivery, every boat at ASIS is thoroughly tested. During the sea trials, these offshore RHIB boats performed admirably, a standard trait for all ASIS boats.
These offshore RHIB Boats are designed to be driven efficiently in the roughest seas and are thus certified under category “B” for offshore use with 15 passengers onboard.
With the imposed restrictions on the motorboats operating around and nearby offshore oil and gas platforms, these three offshore RHIB Boats have been fitted with diesel engines.
Two are powered by OXE Diesel outboards of 150Hp and the third boat is powered by a Yanmar 4LHA-DTZP Diesel engine paired with a Hamilton jet.
In addition to the patented hypalon Hyb Foam® tube, these offshore RHIB boats have a single point lifting system installed at the center of gravity and connected to a Henriksen safety release hook to easily, quickly, and safely launch and recover the boats to and from the platform.
For boarding operations and personnel transfer, the boats have been equipped with front boarding steps with handrails.
The orange tube has non-skid ware protective patches all over it and braced with a reflective tape all around, perfect for light reflection and night operations, the hypalon tube has a triple line of protective rubber fenders.
Among the other options on the boats, folding diving ladders with platforms have been fixed to the stainless steel radar arch; which too is featuring a self righting bag, and carrying the radar dome, antennas, radar reflector, search lights and other…
