        总部设在美国的近海船舶运营商和海运专业公司Guice Offshore收购了三艘符合《琼斯法案》的船舶,其船队船舶数量已扩至10艘,这些船舶适用于多个领域作业,包括近海风能、可再生能源和石油天然气。
 
        Guice Offshore公司于周一表示,其船队增加了三艘新船,包括一艘长170英尺“DP1”型多用途船( multi-purpose vessel)和两艘长205英尺“DP2”型平台供应船(platform support vessels,简称PSV)。
 
        这家公司总部设在美国,是用于专业市场中具有动态定位功能的小型供应船和中型多用途船的运营商,其解释说,这三艘船分别为长170英尺的DP1 型多用途平台供应船(MPSV )“GO Explorer”号、长205英尺的DP2型平台供应船(PSV)“ GO Crusader”号以及多用途平台供应船(MPSV)“ GO Adventurer”号。据Guice Offshore称,这三艘船都符合《琼斯法案》(Jones Act)要求,并获得了美国海岸警卫队(the U.S. Coast Guard)“Subchapter L & I”双重认证。
 
        Guice Offshore公司负责人Billy Guice表示:“这三艘船舶及本公司所有船舶都经过关键技术、结构和/或设备的改进,从而满足严苛的客户要求。”
 
        这家运营商声称,这三艘船舶都能满足各个领域的广泛需求,这些领域涵盖了日益发展的美国海上风能产业、航空航天、可再生能源、石油和天然气、政府和军事、环境、灾难响应与恢复、检查、维护和修理、科研、救援、岩土测量以及纪录片和电影市场这些领域。
 
        除此之外,该公司还称,其中两艘船“GO Explorer”号和“GO Crusader”号近期完成了特别检查干船坞和升级工作,并立即调用到了专业市场租约中。据Guice Offshore公司表示,现在这两艘船都采用了新一代动态定位软件、通信设备和摄像系统。
 
        多用途平台供应船(MPSV)“ GO Explorer”号的升级工作包括安装了两个新的主引擎,其中一个是新的发电机引擎,以及更新了推进器的驱动。 
 
        另一方面,平台供应船(PSV)“ GO Crusader”号的所有主发动机和发电机都进行了高端大修,更新了推进器驱动部件,以及对该船的船员休息室也进行了升级。该公司声称,这种平台供应船(PSV)能够满足传统石油和天然气要求,包括液态散装钻井液的运输工作。
 
        与此同时,多用途平台供应船(MPSV)“ GO Adventurer”号正在完成其特别检查,并增加了改进措施和关键任务设备。Guice Offshore公司表示,该船2022年5月初投入使用后会成为其最大的中型多用途船。 
 
        该公司进一步补充说,这艘多用途平台供应船(MPSV)配备了折臂式起重机、15吨的A型架和可容纳40人的住宿套房。
 
        该船适用于涵盖了政府工作、研究、海底/潜水及海上风电等多个领域。

Three Jones Act-compliant offshore vessels joining U.S. operator’s fleet
 
U.S.-based offshore vessel operator and maritime transport specialist Guice Offshore has expanded its fleet to ten vessels following the acquisition of three Jones Act-qualified vessels, which can be used in several sectors, including offshore wind, renewable energy, and oil and gas.
 
Guice Offshore informed on Monday that it has added three new vessels to its fleet, including another 170 ft. DP1 multi-purpose vessel and two 205 ft. DP2 platform support vessels (PSV).
 
The U.S.-based operator of dynamically positioned mini-supply and medium-sized multi-purpose vessels in the specialty market explained that these three vessels will operate as the 170 ft. DP1 MPSV GO Explorer, 205 ft. DP2 PSV GO Crusader, and MPSV GO Adventurer.  All three are Jones Act-qualified and dually certified Subchapter L & I by the U.S. Coast Guard, based on Guice Offshore’s statement.
 
Billy Guice, Guice Offshore principal, remarked: “These and all Guice Offshore vessels have undergone significant technical, structural and/or equipment enhancements to meet the most demanding customer requirements.”
 
The operator claims that all three vessels are fitted to address a wide array of needs in the growing U.S. offshore wind energy industry, along with those in aerospace; renewable energy; oil and gas; government and military; environmental; disaster response and recovery; inspection, maintenance and repair; science research; salvage; geotechnical surveying; and documentary and film markets.
 
Furthermore, the company reported that two of these vessels – GO Explorer and GO Crusader – recently completed special survey dry docks and upgrades, and were immediately deployed to charters in the specialty marketplace. Both vessels now incorporate next-generation dynamic positioning software, communications gear and camera systems, according to Guice Offshore.
 
The upgrades for the MPSV GO Explorer included two new main engines, one new generator engine, and a thruster drive update. 
 
On the other hand, the PSV GO Crusader received top-end overhauls on all main engines and generators, along with new thruster drive components and an upgrade to the vessel’s crew lounge. The company claims that this PSV is capable of supporting traditional oil and gas requirements including the transportation of liquid and bulk drilling fluids.
 
Meanwhile, the MPSV GO Adventurer is completing its special survey with an expanded complement of enhancements and mission-critical equipment. Guice Offshore stated that this vessel will be its largest midsize, multi-purpose vessel upon its availability in early May 2022. 
 
The firm further added that this MPSV is replete with a knuckle boom crane, 15-ton A-Frame, and an accommodation suite to house and office 40 personnel.
 
The vessel is suited for several sectors, including government, research, subsea/diving and offshore wind.
