Futuristic MPSV delivered to Nigeria







 Arena Offshore has delivered the 34-metre multi-purpose utility vessel ‘Batoil Beagle 1’ to Nigerian marine services provider Batoil Services.
Designed by Alfa Marine Design, a naval architect in which Arena Offshore owns a 35 per cent stake, the ‘Batoil Beagle 1’ measures 34 metres in length overall, with a breadth of 9.8 metres and a molded depth of 3.85 metres.




Featuring a futuristic vessel profile dominated by sharp angles and an eye-catching red colour scheme for the hull, general features of the ‘Batoil Beagle 1’ include both forward and aft bridge control (with maneuvering stations) in the wheelhouse, 10m3 cold store capacity, a wood-lined deck, CCTV, a remote-controlled searchlight system and weatherproof electrical supply to the deck. According to the Arena Offshore, the deck’s electrical supply is also capable of powering TEU containers that require refrigeration.
For the vessel’s power train, a pair of 970kW engines turns fixed-pitch propellers to a design speed of 13 knots, a cruising speed of 11 knots and a range of 3,700 nautical miles.
With the ‘Batoil Beagle 1’ capable of fire fighting operations, the main engines also power a pair of remote-operated 1,400m3/h fire fighting monitors.


The ‘Batoil Beagle 1’ can perform a wide range of offshore supply and construction tasks befitting her operator’s wide portfolio of specialised marine engineering and support services.
Her 125m2 of free deck space provides a deck load capacity of 100 tonnes, whilst installed container lashings can secure up to four TEU containers for cargo transfer.
A 20-tonne detachable A-frame, meanwhile, facilitates construction work, and the vessel features accommodation facilities for up to 20 crew and personnel.
