DP3 / DP2 FLEET
West African Ventures owns and operates a fleet of five new multipurpose DP3 / DP2 offshore installation and accommodation vessels, based on a hybrid design configuration: Jascon 25, Jascon 28, Jascon 30, Jascon 31, Jascon 34 and Jascon 55.
These vessels combine a Class 3 Dynamic Positioning System, large unobstructed decks, high capacity cranes ranging from 270 to 800 tonnes, the ability to install rigid and/or flexible pipe, and large accommodation capacities of between 298 to 469 passengers. Due to the large unobstructed decks accommodation capacities can be temporarily expanded by portable accommodation blocks or containerized units.
All our vessels can be fitted with a hydraulic heave compensated gangway which, combined with the DP3 system, guarantees high connection times to both FPSO’s and production platforms, for twentyfour hours a day, under the most challenging conditions.
These are the key features that allow the WAV DP3 fleet to operate in pipelay, construction, SURF and accommodation markets. Please click on the links below to download more information about our vessels.
