Godmother at the naming ceremony was Shefali Bajaj, the daughter of main shareholder Mr. Ashok Garware. In addition to an Indian naming ceremony onboard Beaucephalus there was also a gala dinner at the Radisson SAS Hotel Bryggen in Bergen.

 Havyard Leirvik AS has great success with their Havyard 832 design. This vessel is the 8th in line of Havyard 832 designs that have been delivered with a further three ships under construction. All of Havyard 832s that have been delivered are on longterm contracts and the second hand value has proved to be very good.

 Beaucephalus is designed by Havyard Design AS in Fosnavåg, Norway and Havyard 832 L SE is a large medium size platform supply vessel (PSV) meeting future market demands. This design has found a new niche within the PSV segment. The design has larger capacities compared to existing designs in the medium segment and is today defined as ”large medium size”, it has energy-optimised diesel electric propulsion and satisfies the environmental demands of ”Clean Design”.

 Havyard 832 CD has proved to be very successful in terms of the environment and seakeeping abilities and feedback from users of these type of vessels have been very positive.

 Havyard 832 L SE is based on the Havyard 832 CD design and has been further developed in accordance with customer demands and also general market demands. Compared to a standard Havyard 832 CD this new design is extended and also has a larger ship interior. As a result Havyard 832 L SE has a bigger deadweight tonnage (storage capacity), accommodation for more people and is far more flexible in regards to the types of jobs the ship can do. In addition to usual platform supply jobs this vessel is also designed to perform smaller types of construction work and general maintenance and repair on subsea oil installations. The ship is prepared for installation of offshore cranes as well as ROV- (Remotely Operated Vehicle) handling. Havyard 832 L SE is also prepared for moonpool.

 An already successful working partnership between Havyard Group and Garware Offshore Services Ltd. has developed further in the last few years. This is now clearly visible by Havyard Leirvik`s delivery of the 5th ship to Garware Offshore Services Ltd. in only four years. The company has its main offices in Mumbai, India and has several PSV vessels and AHTS vessels in their fleet. The company`s PSVs are serving in India and in The North Sea, with their AHTSs operating in India and in Asia.
