ASV PIONEER is well known in the industry for having assisted in the wreck removal of the “Coast Concordia” and her recent Accommodation Support project in the Baltic.
The 2007 built and ABS classed barge has an eight-point mooring system with four 100 tons double-drum winches with 1100 mtrs wire, allowing her to be moored in deep waters. ASV Pioneer currently has accommodation for 120 POB in well-appointed en-suite rooms, and is complete with ofﬁce, galley, mess, medical and recreational facilities, to provide an ideal living and working environment. This accommodation can be upgraded to 220 POB in her current configuration.
The barge has been used as an accommodation and diving support station with a portable sat system (below pic) for the Costa Concordia and also as a cable lay barge. She could be used for pipe-lay projects, cable lay projects, accommodation, diving support etc.
ASV Pioneer could be increased to house in excess of 300 men, a helideck and crane if and when required. Even upgrade to DP2 by installing four thruster sets could be possible (please enquire).
Having finished their project and special survey the Owners are keen – but not forced - to sell her but shall consider interesting charter or BBHP enquiries as well.
