The CSS M98 is a larger version of the successful 84 m CSS design. This larger unit is designed to provide enhanced accommodation and recreational facilities, an increased deck cargo capacity and increased crane operational capacity. Some
key features of the design are:
- 30.5m to 46.5 m telescopic gangway
- helideck with a 12.8 T rating
- 100T knuckle boom crane
- capacity to accommodate up to 501 persons with crew in single berth cabins.
Due to the hull design and DP-3 arrangement, the M98 is able to remain connected to a platform through a large range of environmental conditions without having to disconnect due to excessive motions.
