Vikosprint 30 offers an exceptionally wide and stable working platform for working. The vessel hull form is a carefully optimised trimaran. Different load conditions have relatively little influence to speed. Fuel consumption is low allowing for smaller fuel tanks and better payload.The vessel is intended for longer open sea expeditions which can last from one week to one month.
Vikosprint 30 has accommodation arranged so that there are three cabins: One for the Captain on bridge level and two cabins on main deck level for the crew. On main deck there is 200 m² for Equipment area. The deck can accommodate a 20`container, Rib, two open ocean boom reels 500m of boom on each. There is still a good amount of working space around the deck.
The basic model of the vessel is not constructed for navigation in ice field, however, we have tested the trimaran hull in arctic laboratory and know that when the hull is properly strengthened, the 30 m version can go in 25cm ice. The shape has been patented for navigation in ice conditions.The navigation ability in Nordic waters will be offered as an option.
The bridge is designed for two navigation persons. There can be a co-pilot sitting next to the person in helm. A small sofa with table is mounted behind the pilot’s seat. On the main deck level there will be dedicated workshop/deck storage. There is a space for changing clothes and washing in a shower. From this space there is entrance to a separate water closet and shower. Additionally there is a small pantry and mess room. The vessel propulsion is marine diesel engine with conventional shafting and propeller arrangement. Controllable pitch propeller is offered as an option for constant low speed working and maximum hydraulic power output in different sea states and load conditions. CP-propeller helps moving the vessel accurately and allowing simultaneous use of the needed hydraulic equipment.The vessel has low wave making properties.
