The present design of an Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel is greatly influenced by the operational requirements and the environmental conditions of the area of operation. This article looks at how the functional specifications and requirements of an Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel (AHTSV) affect its design, as well as the principal design drivers such as the area of operations, construction and operating costs, oil price and charter hire. An economic analysis based on pre-offshore crisis conditions is performed, and it is then re-evaluated taking into account the current offshore crisis. The article then compares the designs of the AHTSV based on two different areas of operations, namely Norway and Indonesia. Several possible design solution concepts are then derived for these two areas of operations.
