Dalby Ouse Starts Its First Gig
Dalby Offshore’s latest vessel – the Dalby Ouse – was delivered to its owner on 8 July in Great Yarmouth, two weeks after the official naming of the vessel at Seawork 2016.
The vessel has left the Alicat Workboats yard and commenced its first employment with immediate effect from Trinity Quay, Dalby’s joint venture facility with the Gardline Shipping Group.
“The ‘Dalby Ouse’ sets new standard for vessels servicing the offshore wind sector in respect of speed, comfort and overall performance,” said Stuart McNiven, owner of Dalby.
The Ouse is the first 26 metre South Boats IOW design to be built by Alicat Workboats in Great Yarmouth.
Steve Thacker of Alicat Workboats said: “The vessel is the largest vessel to date that we have built for Dalby Offshore, the 26m benefits from extensive hull form development and testing ensuring vertical accelerations remain below guidance levels and optimising the performance parameters for the vessel.”
