Highland Chieftain AntiRoll Tank for GulfMark
A repeat contract was awarded to Niron Staal for the fabrication of one antiroll tank for GULFMARK UK LTD platform supply vessel ‘Highland Chieftain’.
Antiroll tanks are installed onto ships in order to reduce the roll motion and roll angle during adverse weather condition. The antiroll sections were installed directly against the aft face of the vessels accommodation. Constructed as a complete single section, extending across the entire weather deck from port to starboard side, they extend upward from B deck to the bridge deck. The antiroll tanks are now a seamless and fully integrated part of the ships structure.
Jim Bradford, GulfMark’s General Manager Operations comments: “As we are satisfied with the installation of the two AntiRoll tanks on the Highland Defender and Highland Guardian at an earlier stage, we awarded the fabrication of the third AntiRoll Tank also to Niron Staal”.
