Platform Supply Vessels
As the name suggests, Platform Supply Vessels (PSV) are used to carry crew and supplies to the oil platform deep inside oceans, and bring cargo and personnel back to shore. Their size varies from small 20 meter long ship to 100 meters large ship. These vessels are designed to transport a wide range of cargo such as drilling fluids, cement, mud, and fuel in tanks beneath the deck. The open deck on PSVs is normally used to carry other materials like casing, drill pipe, tubing and miscellaneous deck cargo to and from offshore platforms. Platform Supply Vessels are often equipped with firefighting equipments to deal with emergency situations.
