34 Metre 170 tonne Catamaran "Offshore Guardian" - Pre-launch - Foxton, New Zealand

Offshore Guardian. Pre-launch.
Manufactured by Profab Engineering in Palmerston North. Transported by Central House Movers located in Bulls.
Part 1 of 2. This video is pre-launch only. The launch itself was held off a couple of days when tides were more favourable. Part 2 showing her maiden voyage out the river channel and over the Foxton Bar is shown below.
Foxton wharf was upgraded to allow for the 170 tonne vessel's launch. The wharf has had to be widened an extra 5m. The multi-role boat can operate as a dive boat, with compression chambers on board, is capable of ferrying crews to oil and gas rigs, and will be fitted with a remote operated vehicle (ROV) capable of diving to investigate sites, such as the Rena wreck off the coast of Tauranga. It can be driven backwards into oil rigs, with a second helm at the back of the wheelhouse, and is equipped with dynamic positioning, which means it can be controlled with a joystick and be held in place regardless of waves and swells. The boat is powered by two main diesel engines, with 715 horsepower and four generators, however everything else is electric. "Most of the boat is electric. A lot of boats like this use hydraulics, this one is a little bit different," according to Profab Engineering owner Carl Ferguson. Foxton based Caldow Builders spent about 2 weeks pouring concrete to strengthen the ramp to hold the combined weight of the boat and the truck carrying it - about 250 tonnes in total. New Zealand Diving and Salvage co-founder Dougal Fergus said the boat cost "multi millions". This was a joint venture between the New Zealand and Australian branches of Guardian Offshore, which is owned by New Zealand Diving and Salvage. This was the seventh of eight boats Profab had built for the two branches. Fergus said this one could could be used in the offshore industry such as pipeline work, geophysical work or operate as a chase boat. "It will work between here and Australia and the Pacific. It has the capacity to go anywhere in the world - apart from Antarctica." The vessel was launched later that night after being jacked up by air bags whilst waiting for the tide. She launched around 9pm and many people missed it. This was not the original plan but while making some adjustments to her position on the ramp, noting that the wind had died off and all required personnel and equipment were in position; the decision was made to just keep going!
