• ZAMAKONA YARDS WILL BUILD FOR ATLANTIC OFFSHORE

    Atlantic Offshore has ordered two new vessels, worth €50 million from Zamakona Yards in Bilbao, Spain. Atlantic Offshore has placed orders for two FSV (Fast Supply Vessel) with towing bollard. Additionally, the company have options for two more vessels, of corresponding price. Zamakona Yards have built several similar vessels in the recent years, and have solid international references relating to quality and delivery time. Both vessels, and any options, will be delivered during 2014.

     

    The vessels are tied to the contracts Atlantic Offshore have entered with oil companies Total and Shell United Kingdom, and will operate in both Norwegian and British sectors. We will be built in the HY 820 design, developed by Havyard in close cooperation with Atlantic Offshore. Zamakona Yards will involve Norwegian subcontractors for the newbuilds.

     

    The vessels represent, in all aspects, one of the most modern standby vessel, and the oil companies are eager to acquire vessels that can serve functions beyond emergency rescue and response.

     

    It is imperative that future FSV vessels can alleviate platforms with towing and cargo-storage capacity. The vessels are equipped with hospital facilities with providing for up to 300 people. One vessel will be delivered with advanced firefighting capacity (FiFi II). The vessels are 68 meters long and 16 meters wide.

    History of Las Palmas Port

     

    Since ancient times the Bay of La Isleta, on the north-east coast of Gran Canaria, had been used by Phoenician and Roman ships as a safe anchorage; but it was not until 1478, the foundation year of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, that regular port activities were to be seen in this harbour.
