Burrard Yarrows To Build $29-Million Supply Vessel

For Use In Beaufort Sea

Burrard Yarrows Corporation,

Vancouver, B.C., Canada, recent- ly received a $29-million contract to build an icebreaking Class 3 offshore supply vessel for Dome

Petroleum Limited of Calgary.

The vessel, to be built at Bur- rard Yarrows' Vancouver yard, is scheduled to operate in the

Beaufort Sea for Canmar Drill- ing Limited, Dome's seagoing arm, upon delivery in June 1982.

It will provide support services to drillships.

The 4,450-ton vessel has an overall length of 82.5 meters (about 270 feet) ; breadth over reamers of 19 meters (62 feet), depth of 7.5 meters (25 feet), and is driven by two 4,500-hp diesels with twin-screw control- lable-pitch propellers. The four- blade propellers are built to a tensile strength of 70 kg/m2.

They develop 4,080 base horse- power metric at 180 rpm. The ship, designed by Arctic Offshore

Design Limited of Vancouver, carries 12 crew and 14 passen- gers.

Hydranautics Provides

Skidding Systems For

Jackups Apollo III, IV

Hydranautics Hydraulic Sys- tems, Goleta, Calif., completed shipment recently of the skidding systems contracted by Western

Oceanic, Inc., Houston, Texas, for use on Apollo III and IV. The

Friede & Goldman designed L780 cantilever, self-elevating offshore drilling units are being built by

China Shipbuilding Corp., Taiwan.

The jackups are under contract by Udeco for operation in Abu


The building contract called for two rig sets of cantilever and drill floor skidding systems. Each sys- tem consists of a pair of Gripper

Jack assemblies, each with a total capacity of 700 short tons in the cantilever skidding mode and 250 short tons in the drill floor skid- ding mode.

According to Western Oceanic officials, the amount of fabricated steel required to construct each of the jackups is reduced by 12 tons using Hydranautics' sys- tems. •* Write 128 on Reader Service Card
