ULSTEINVIK, Norway – Ulstein has delivered the CBO Pacifico platform supply vessel, the second PX106 design newbuild for CBO this year. The vessel went directly from the Estaleiro Alianca yard into a contract with Petrobras.
These first two PX106 vessels are relatively small, said Ulstein, and comply with Petrobras’ PSV 3000 tender. The next four are of the larger PX105 design that complies with the PSV 4500 tender. All vessels will be working on eight-year contracts for Petrobras. The four PSVs of the PX105 design will be delivered during 2012–2013.
