Isle of Wight, UK-based Alicat Workboats Ltd., a manufacturer of Wind Farm Crew Transfer Vessels, has received a £2.1 million order from local company, Iceni Marine Services Ltd. of Lowestoft for a Global Marine designed Alicat 21m Catamaran.

The new vessel is to be delivered to Iceni Marine Services during Q1, 2015 from Great Yarmouth. The next few months are set to be very busy for both Alicat Workboats, sister company South Boats IOW and Iceni Marine Services with delivery of the Alicat 21m in February along with Iceni Venture, a South Boats Catamaran 22m from Cowes at the end of February and Iceni Vengeance, a South Boats Catamaran 22m also from Great Yarmouth at the end of March, both of which have already been contracted to O&M direct by utility companies.

The Alicat 21m vessel, yet to be named, is a third of class design already in service on two UK projects and features a resiliently mounted centre twin deck superstructure with forward and after cargo decks capable of carrying 7 tonnes of equipment. Fitted with twin MAN V12-1400 main engines and Rolls Royce FF550 water jets the vessel returns 30 knot performance and, according to Alicat, excellent fuel efficiency at normal operational speeds. The vessel carries up to 12 technicians alongside up to 3 crew under UK MCA Category 2 (MGN280M) code of practice.

“As a former apprentice at Richards Dry Dock & Engineering, I am immensely proud to be in a position to order our first vessel from Alicat Workboats (part of the RDDE group) and to support shipbuilding in Great Yarmouth.” said Guy Gibson of Iceni Marine Services.
