  Dalby’s latest vessel the ‘Dalby Ouse’ was delivered to owners Dalby Offshore on the 8th July in Great Yarmouth only 2 weeks after her official naming at Seawork’s 2016.

  “The ‘Dalby Ouse’ sets new standard for vessels servicing the offshore wind sector in respect of speed, comfort and overall performance,” said Stuart McNiven, Owner of Dalby. “It further enhances our offering to our key clients across Europe and with our 5 x 23m deliveries, the latest being the ‘Dalby Don’ in December 2015 and Dalby Yare in April 2016, it has been a significant 12 months for the team.”

  The ‘Dalby Ouse’ has a newly developed motion monitoring system on board so we are all keen to see the early results from this innovation.  The vessel achieved over 32 knots on trials.

  Stuart went on to say it “It is pleasing that we continue to build our fleet and cement our relationship with local builder Alicat Workboats.  We operate on a 100% UK content basis with all crew’s employed within the UK. Dalby employ local crew’s where ever possible and has its own apprentice scheme.

  The ‘Dalby Ouse’ left the Alicat Workboats yard and commenced its first employment with immediate effect from Trinity Quay, Dalby’s joint venture facility with the Gardline Shipping Group.  

 Steve Bartram from Dalby Offshore said; ‘We have listened to our clients and crews requirements, to which we have added a significant amount of extra facility’s on the Dalby Ouse, she has 8 technicians berths below with natural light and en-suite facility’s and a 6 crew modular accommodation on the stern which can be added for 24hr operations with a duration of 7 days at sea, to carry out any emergency works in the OWF. She has a total cargo capacity of 20t and 27000lts of fuel with 110v power sockets and ISO container points fully classed and DG certified.

The ride and comfort levels are second to none with the quietest saloon of only 58db, with a total pax capability of 24. She has already gone to work for a major client on the Dudgeon windfarm, were she has been performing exceptional well with her speed and capability in cargo carrying operations. With our existing CTV vessels the Dalby Ouse will more than complement our fleet, and will offer our clients a flexible choice in today’s market.

Steve Thacker of Alicat Workboats added “We are very pleased to continue our working relationship with Dalby Offshore with the build and delivery of the ‘Dalby Ouse’.  The vessel is the largest vessel to date that we have built for Dalby Offshore, the 26m benefits from extensive hull form development and testing ensuring vertical accelerations remain below guidance levels and optimising the performance parameters for the vessel.  We are very impressed with the craft and its quality proving that vessels designed and built in the UK can compete against the Far East and deliver cost effective, class leading solutions to our clients.”
