From Exeter to Skye with our brand new workboat
Our brand new workboat Bàta nam Brathairean arrived at the OSH sites on the 15th April, after a week-long delivery voyage from her builders in Exeter. She is a multipurpose vessel with capabilities including net washing, cargo transportation and general site duties. Fitted with two deck cranes and a bow ramp for Ro-Ro operations, Bàta nam Brathairean will be able to operate in a wide variety of settings and entered service immediately after arriving at the OSH sites for the first time.
Delivered by Damen Shipyards and built by Coastal Workboats Scotland Ltd, based in Exeter, the 19 metres long workboat is the very first of Damen’s LUV1908 aquaculture support vessels. She is painted in the green Organic Sea Harvest colour scheme and has a top service speed of 8 knots.
Look out for more photos to come of her first days on site!
