Peruvian Navy Takes Delivery of Dive Support Vessel

BAP MORALESM Also Acts as Salvage Tug

In December, the Peruvian Navy took delivery of a 32m dive support vessel which can also act as a salvage tug. Designed and built by Servicios Industriales de la Marina (SIMA), the vessel accommodates a crew of 20 and has additional space to cater for up to 13 divers.

A pair of Cummins QSK60 MCRS engines each develop 2,200HP at 1,800rpm and turn into ZF W11200 main gears with 7.286:1 reduction, turning four-blade 91.25in Kaplan propellers in nozzle mountings. This combination gives the vessel a bollard pull of 52t and a speed of 12 knots.

The double chined hull, a four-point anchoring system and a launch and recovery system for deployment of an open diving bell are all features that make BAP MORALESM a welcome addition to the Navy’s Salvage Group.
