Multipurpose vessel

Over years, our team has extensive experience in multipurpose vessel operations for a wide range of applications. AS Scan not only offers a comprehensive portfolio of winch applications to handle and deploy your valuable scientific equipment. We also help institutes, vessel designers and shipyards find the best possible equipment configuration for the intended operations.


Multipurpose vessels are designed to facilitate many different operations such as fishery inspection or multi-purpose. AS SCAN has delivered equipment to both fishery inspection vessels and multi-purpose vessels.

Fishery inspection vessels that carry out control duties in the fishery zone outside coastal waters. In addition to the main purpose the vessel can be designed to fit future inspection challenges, e.g., by the use of drones, and cover service functions such as emergency towing assistance, salvage, and surveys.

Multi-purpose vessels are made as single layer or of double-layer hull. The vessel has ability to function as both a buoys and beacons maintenance vessel as well as an oil recovery vessel. It can be designed for fast response time and fitted with specialized equipment i.e., surface oil skimmers and dedicated holding tanks. Some of the vessels we have delivered equipment for are event built to operate in extreme harsh environment such as the Arctic Ocean.



Our portfolio features standardised, proven winches and steering systems and our track record demonstrate our ability within this industry. We also deliver fast boarding boat systems that can be launched from a built-in stern recess. The boarding system is delivered as a hydraulically operated unit with cylinders for fast launching/recovery of the boat. It is designed for long-term, efficient operation, handling and stowing boats in a tough and corrosive marine and offshore environment on the deck of any vessel.
