DP1 Vessel “C-Horizon” joins Leask Marine fleet!

International Marine Contractors, Leask Marine Ltd have taken ownership of their latest new vessel, MV “C-HORIZON”, a Neptune Marine built DP 1 EuroCarrier 2611.

The vessel is 26 m long, 11 m wide and is a Tier III compliant vessel specifically designed for a diverse range of roles supporting the offshore marine renewable sector.

Douglas Leask, Managing Director of Leask Marine Ltd said “We are particularly pleased to have
purchased this DP 1 EuroCarrier 2611 that is fully fit for purpose for the renewable energy market. The vessel is outfitted with a powerful 4-point mooring system for operation in currents of 8 knots. The purchase of the C-Horizon is another significant milestone in the development of the business, and provides a great enhancement to the range of services we provide.”

C-Horizon, Leask Marine's latest addition to our fleet.

The vessel is equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System (DP1), which is a computer-controlled system used to automatically maintain the vessels heading and position and allows the ability to automatically hold station without the use of mooring lines and anchors.

It has two C32 caterpillar main engines, 1200hp each, which gives a bollard pull of 34.7 tons, and the engines drive two 1,85 meter propellers, providing a speed of 10 knots. For electric power, the vessel is equipped with two IMO Tier III compliant Volvo D13 generator sets. A Heila 230-4SL deck crane is fitted on PS at the bow and can lift 24.4tons @7.89m, and a Heila 140-3S at the aft deck. Also, a 100 tons anchor handling winch, a 50 tons towing winch, a 15 tons tugger winch and a 25 tons 4 point mooring system. In the bow, a wide bow-roller is fitted in combination with hydraulically operated wire-guide pins. The vessel also has two Volvo D13 generator sets producing 720Kw.

This is the latest of a number of significant investments over the past years and the result of this has been record growth for the business, working with some of the most recognisable international clients in the offshore marine renewable market.
