Craig Group to expand emergency response fleet
Scottish shipping and energy services firm Craig Group has contracted Spain’s Balenciaga Shipyard to build six new vessels at a cost of about $109 million.
The order includes four D class IMT 950 and two F class IMT 958 emergency response and rescue vessels, with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2014.
The D class vessels will be 50 m (164 ft) in length and will be outfitted with at least one daughter craft and fast rescue craft. The F class vessels, at 58 m (190 ft) in length, will also have limited cargo storage capacity.
