Blyth Workcats to Build ABP Survey Vessel

Blyth Workcats has won a contract from the Associated British Ports (ABP) to build a new 14-metre survey vessel at the company’s yard on Canvey Island, Essex, UK.

The new boat will be based on one of Blyth Workcats’ survey craft models but tailored to meet the specific requirements of ABP’s hydrographic surveyors.

The vessel will be based in Hull and used for survey operations.

The new ABP boat will powered by two Iveco Cursor D90 engines de-rated to 550hp which will give it a top speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of around 21 knots.

The interior will provide two survey desks and seating for up to six surveyors. Outside, it will be fitted with a hydraulic A-frame for the deployment of survey equipment, a P500L deck crane, a moon pool and an electric multibeam sonar deployment carriage.
