MODEL SLIPWAY AZIZ



REAL SHIPS

These ship were built for worldwide operations to service and tow drilling units, and support production platforms Aziz and her sister ship Arif were commissioned in 1983 for Prince Offshore Ltd of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The vessels were powered by two diesel engines, total maximum BHP of 4200 at 600 rpm, with fixed pitch propellers running in Kort nozzles. Maximum ballard pull is 52 tons.

The main feature of their deck machinery is a diesel driven double-drum waterfall type anchor handling/towing winch. One of the drums holds 730 meters of 50mm diameter towing wire that can be reeled in and out remotely from the wheelhouse. Additional towing wire is available as a spare on a separate reel.

Two 3.1 ton capacity Tugger winches are fitted behind the superstructure, one on each side of the cargo deck and a 6 ton electro-hydraulic deck crane is located on the boat deck for cargo handling.

The wheelhouse is designed to incorporate maximum visibility all around with dual controls for the main engines, steering gear and bow-thruster units. A second control station at the aft end of the wheelhouse incorporates remote control of towing/anchor handling winch. Each vessel is fully air-conditioned for hot and cold climates and berths are provided for 11 crew and 12 passengers.

Metal kits for the large waterfall winch, the tugger winches, anchor windlass and deck crane are included. It's worth stating that these are kit's in themselves. There are over 600 cast alloy metal fittings and also etched brass components for the fine detail finish including brass handrail stanchions.

Although the 6 AHTS vessels supplied to Prince Offshore Ltd were identical in color schemes, decals for only the Aziz and Arif are supplied in the kit.
