A. K. Suda (SUDA) has successfully completed the design of a 300 ft. (91.5m) truss-legged liftboat. This vessel is being delivered to its owners in 1st Quarter 2016. This vessel follows on the heels of the world’s largest pipelegged liftboat, the SUDA 335-L3, delivered last year.

This state-of-the-art vessel is a 4-legged, selfpropelled, self-elevating, general service liftboat, known as the SUDA 300-L4T. It is ABS classed with Unrestricted Service,  A-1, AMS. The hull dimensions are 164 ft. x 98 ft., 5 in x 14 ft., 9 in, (50m x 30m x 4.5m). It has one leg encircling crane of 200T, and a 70T pedestal crane. The quarters arrangement can accommodate 85 persons including crew. It has a cargo deck area of 740 m2 of which 450 m2 is rated for 10 t/m2 and the balance for 5 t/m2.

This Self-Elevating Unit is capable of working in water depths up to 236 ft. (72 m). It also has a CAP 437 heliport, capable of supporting a Sikorsky S76 or Bell 412 helicopter.

According to the firm’s CEO, Mr. Ajay Suda, “In keeping with our tradition of providing cost effective solutions, there were a number of innovations in this design, the most notable one being the specially design jacking unit housing that accommodates the traditional pipe leg liftboat jacking system. Pipe leg jacking systems are traditionally low cost, high endurance systems.”

In addition to the SUDA 300-L4T hulls, also under construction are the 335’ 3-legged truss design SUDA 335-L3T and the 320’ 4-legged truss design SUDA 320-L4T.
