Anchor Handling Towing Supply (AHTS) Vessels

Anchor Handling Towing Supply (AHTS) vessels have been an intrinsic part of the offshore oil industry since drilling oil from oceans first began. These essential vessels perform many key functions and are built to deploy and recover mooring systems for deepwater drilling rigs, undertake traditional supply duties in support of drilling operations, and support subsea construction activities.

AHTS vessels range from 8,000 to 15,000 BHP (brake horsepower). In addition, these vessels can also act as rescue vessels for other ships in times of emergency and can be used as effective tools to prevent oil rig capsizing and other mishaps that might occur in the high sea waters.
