SKJÆRGÅRDSTJENESTEN I HANDED OVER IN NØTTERØY
On Oct. 12th, Friday Afternoon, Mobimar's most recent archipelago service vessel left her outfitting quay in Turku.
The sea trials had been approved by the classification and the new owner. The final approval was quite easy for all parties to sign as all the requirements were fulfilled. For instance the requested speed 30 knots with just 80% MCR was clearly exceeded in the salty waters of Norway. In the latest official test run the top speed was +35 knots with the crew of two and the fuel tanks full up!
The transit from Turku, Finland to the south coast of Norway was 740 nautical miles and the target was to arrive at Nøtterøy after 'long weekend'.
The transit from Turku, Finland to the south coast of Norway was 740 nautical miles and the target was to arrive at Nøtterøy after a 'long weekend'. Many people at Mobimar were interested to take part in this unique mission. Unfortunately the design and building of fine vessels is not qualifying enough, and thus the crew was formed by the trusted captain of ours with unlimited master's license and a very competent engine specialist from the executive team of Mobimar.
The last leg of the 740 NM transit from Turku, Finland to Nøtterøy, Norge The experienced crew succeeded in maintaining the average speed between 25 and 27 knots during the whole passage. After staying overnight at the Swedish coast in Nynäshamn, Simrishamn and Göteborg the Skjærgårdstjenesten I crossed the Norwegian territorial waters on Monday afternoon.
Later, during the handover session, the owner representatives seemed very pleased with their newbuilding. Encouraged by this project Mobimar puts effort on further discussions within the Norwegian market.
