A design fit for different conditions
Attached to the order is an option for a further three vessels of similar design. Tidewater reportedly required a compact design with a high deadweight, thus providing maximum cargo capacity. The chosen design also features good operational efficiency and reduced fuel consumption. Furthermore, the vessel will be readied for cold climate conditions according to the DNV DE-ICE class. This notation includes requirements for maintaining safety and vessel operability in ice, under icing conditions, and at low temperatures.
