Newsletter December 2015: Rhino Craft – cost effective SRP boats and daughter craft

 

Boskalis “Sjambok” 950 SRP Rhino – 4 years of service in West Africa

In 2011 SMIT Subsea (now Boskalis) commissioned Rhino to develop a new inboard diesel 950 as a daughter craft SRP for use in West Africa. The “Sjambok” has been based in Malabo (Equatorial Guinea) and has been operating in offshore Oil and Gas field works since then.

The “Sjambok” is powered by a Steyr Marine 295 HP Inboard diesel motor coupled to an Ultra Jet 305 jet-drive.

According to feedback from Boskalis the return on the financial investment for the Sjambok has been most satisfactory. Richard Penn, the Boskalis Project Manager for African Subsea Services, says that under prevailing West African conditions for both operation and storage it is important to have a work-horse that can be subjected to major abuse and despite this can still carry on working.

The Sjambok has done just that.

Rhino Marine are currently negotiating with Boskalis for developing a larger version sister craft for the Sjambok. What is currently being considered is a wider beam 1050 version that can be powered by twin diesels and jets.

Subsequent to the Sjambok development Rhino Marine have moved away from the Steyr inboard diesels in favour of the Yanmar 315 HP inboard diesels with the Ultra Jet 305 HT (High Torque) jet drive.

Smaller SRP Rhino Craft

The Rhino 600 outboards are used effectively by some operators as smaller SRP boats but generally the preferred smaller SRP Rhino Craft is the new style Rhino 750 fitted with Yanmar 240 HP inboard diesel motor and UJ 251 jet drive.

Currently Rhino Marine are building two new 750 Jet drive SRP’s for West African Ventures (WAV) in Nigeria and one Stern drive unit for Hyprops Nigeria.

Rhino “Wine Rack”

One of the features developed by Rhino Marine for the Boskalis “Sjambok” was the modular container system like a horizontal wine rack. It is fitted with five diving air bottles for SRP use that can be readily positioned on the SRP craft’s deck.
The box lid has an access window to allow easy access to the regulator valves on the end of each bottle. Each of the bottles is piped to a conveniently accessed distribution manifold on the one end corner of the box.

The concept is shown below:

Besides our 950 SRP boats there is an increasing demand for a cost effective larger SRP daughter craft that is fitted with a quick release launch and recovery mechanism, an air-conditioned cabin as well as being powered by twin diesels and jets to give a redundancy for offshore use.
Marsol Services, our partners in Dubai, are currently negotiating with potential clients in the UAE for such a craft and locally we are engaging with other operators in West Africa who are interested in this type of craft as well. The design of this craft is well advanced and the specifications for this craft are as follows:

  • Length bow to transom – 10.51 metres
  • Length bow to end of stern platform – 11.62 metres
  • Breadth – 3.26 metres
  • Propulsion – Twin Yanmar 315/440 HP + UJ305HT Jet
  • Quick Release LARS – Henriksen

Rhino Craft: Boats made for you.

A promising year 2015

Rhino 600

Rhino Craft are currently developing an exciting new range of workboats that gives maximum value, space and load carrying capacity. The picture above shows the prototype testing of the new Rhino 600.  This craft is replacing the Rhino 590 outboard range.

Lighter, faster and dryer, with a significantly increased deck-space and payload, at a base price of below € 15,000 this is an excellent workboat that retains the robustness for which Rhino have become famous.

Fabrication of the prototypes of our new Rhino 750 outboard range has already commenced – see more on this exciting new range in our March edition.
