The first of four state-of-the-art ultra-long distance towing and anchor handling vessels, ‘ALP Striker’, was recently launched at Japan’s Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair.

Based on the ULSTEIN SX157 design, ALP Striker is the first vessel of its kind, and a natural part of the ALP Future Class. The vessel is primarily designed for long-distance towing of large structures, such as oil rigs or FPSOs. The vessel is expected to deliver in the range of 300 t bollard pull. She measures 88.9 m length and 21 m in the beam, and has a deadweight of approximately 4,250 t. With a fuel capacity of 3,500 t, the vessel can perform non-stop Trans-Atlantic/Indian, Pacific Ocean towing operations without fuel calls.

The vessel is planned for delivery in 2016 to ALP Maritime Services, a subsidiary of Teekay Offshore Partners L.P
