The "Ros Aine", commissioned by Irish Commercial Charter Boats (ICCB), is a market first in its offshore vessel design to fit high-performance diesel outboards. This design meets offshore operators' calls for more maneuverable and versatile vessels.
The 12m landing craft is powered by a twin installation of OXE200, supplied by OXE Marine's UK distributor Proteum, and serves ICCB's expanding operational requirements in the growing offshore energy, transportation and aquaculture sectors. Ros Aine can carry up to 4.9 tons and has already accumulated 125 hours of operation.
Owner of ICCB, Eoin Grimes, commented “We have carried out the first contract charter with “Ros Aine” accumulating 125 hours. The potential for the OXE in Ireland is huge within the commercial and aquaculture industry, we are happy to have adopted the OXE early on and are already seeing the benefits”.
