This is the third of eight vessels that will be used for Njord Offshore. The eight vessels, to be deployed by Madliena Shipping (Jersey) Ltd., are 21-meter 15DWT crew transfer catamarans powered by MTU engines of 965 bhp each at 2,250 rpm, for speeds up to 26 knots.

The decks include multiple lash-down points for cargo, and the decks can fit a 10-foot container, if required. Other features include a 6.5-foot knuckle crane, a removable A-frame and a 40-meter deck reel fuel transfer system.

Each vessel, with a crew of four, can accommodate 12 passengers and provide showers, multimedia capacity and a full galley.
