Canadian-based Atlantic Towing Limited said it has entered into a contract with Norwegian builder Havyard Ship Technology for the purchase of a Havyard 833 WE platform supply vessel (PSV), the Atlantic Harrier, for delivery in April 2020.

Designed and built by Havyard Ship Technology, the Atlantic Harrier is an 89.7-meter vessel with a 1,002-square-meter deck area, significant cargo tankage, and accommodations for 54 people. The vessel possesses an Ice Class 1B notation and is designed to withstand the harsh operating conditions of both the North Atlantic and the North Sea.

Equipped with a hybrid battery-diesel-electric propulsion package, state of the art contra-rotating propulsion drives, Clean Design notation, and Tier III low emission engines, the Atlantic Harrier will leverage 650-kilowatts of installed battery power to fully optimize vessel operating modes to significantly reduce fuel consumption during transit, DP-2 and standby activities.
