What is an OSV – Offshore Support Vessel?
Offshore support ships are also known as supply ships. They are specialised vessels designed to operate in the ocean. They are used for platform support, anchor handling, construction, maintenance and more. OSVs bring equipment to platforms or parent offshore turbines. They are an integral part of the delivery of supplies and materials, construction and repair of offshore equipment. They can be built for all types of projects. According to Clarksons, there are over 5,000 OSVs in service and over 600 that have been ordered and currently being constructed.
The VSO Ship Models
This model of overseas support vessel has been scratch-built with a remarkable level of craftsmanship, using the traditional technique of plank-on-frame construction. Every step of the construction process is carefully controlled and takes several weeks. The hulls and decks are constructed from hand-picked hardwoods. The model boat is sanded and varnished in several layers to create a smooth finish. The details are reproduced with finishes in brass and polished metal. The team of master craftsmen use the skills and expertise developed over many years to ensure that this model is identical to the original.
