Oil and Gas RHIBs Delivery to Saipem


ASIS Boats is proud to announce the delivery of three 8-meter Professional RHIB Boats to Saipem. These Boats will be operating offshore of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Custom built to the client’s specifications, these three Professional Oil and Gas RHIBs are constructed to suit their needs and to match with the requirements of the operating environment.

These 8-meter Professional RHIBs are built with Fiber Glass Extra Reinforced hulls & 1670 Dtex hypalon Hyb Foam® tube, which is a special ASIS hybrid tube, comprised of a combination of closed cells memory foam and air; allowing redundancy and reducing the service requirement in order to increase productivity and minimize down time.

Before the delivery, every boat at ASIS is thoroughly tested. During the sea trials, these RHIBs performed admirably, a standard trait for all ASIS boats. These Oil and Gas RHIBs are designed to be driven efficiently in the roughest seas, and thus are certified under category “B” for offshore use with 15 passengers onboard.

With the imposed restrictions on the motorboats operating around and nearby offshore oil and gas platforms, these three Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats have been fitted with diesel engines. Two are powered by OXE Diesel outboards of 150Hp and the third boat is powered by a Yanmar 4LHA-DTZP Diesel engine paired with a Hamilton jet.
