The naming ceremony was graced by Lady Sponsor, Mrs Joy Slosar, wife of Mr John Slosar, Chairman of Swire Pacific Limited and SPO and attended by SPO Board Members, employees and key project partners.
“The addition of Pacific Centurion and Pacific Goldfinch continues our strategy of developing a modern, fuel-efficient, well-specified and reliable fleet capable of supporting the exacting requirements of the offshore industry around the world. We are very confident that both vessels will consistently provide our clients with the safe and high quality service that they have come to expect from Swire Pacific Offshore,” says Managing Director of SPO, Mr Neil Glenn.
Pacific Centurion, an AHTS vessel, is the second vessel launched in the C-Class series, the first being Pacific Champion. The C-Class vessel boasts a 400-tonne line pull Brattvagg winch with triple drums, ideal for mooring semi submersibles or FPSOs in over 1,000 metres of water, and the secondary spooling winch has a total of 8 km of 76 mm wire storage capacity.
Today, SPO operates a diverse fleet of 91 offshore support vessels, including platform supply vessels, anchor handling tug supply vessels, ice-breaking supply vessels, seismic survey vessels, wind-farm installation vessels, accommodation barges and multi-purpose offshore vessels.
