OPUS MARINE’s Fleet Grows
- Business & Finance
The Hamburg based ship owning company and operator of Offshore Service Vessels OPUS MARINE GmbH is adding another vessel to its fleet.
The “MAGNIFICAT” (ex “ATLANTIC COUGAR”) is the former Swedish Marine survey vessel “NILS STRÖMKRONA”. Since 2009 she has been in service for the UK based offshore specialist company Atlantic-Marine who employed the vessel as crew transfer and survey vessel. Aim of the acquisition is the strategic broadening of the present service portfolio for the German offshore industry.
OPUS MARINE is targeting employments of the vessel during the detection and removal of unexploded ordnances (UXO) as well as further services in the growing German offshore industry with its ongoing construction program of new offshore wind farms in the German North and Baltic Sea sectors.
The new vessel “MAGNIFICAT” is a catamaran of 30m length over all and features dynamic positioning (DP) achieved by its two azimuthing and retractable thrusters. Given the additional 4-point mooring and accommodation for up to 10 passengers, this vessel proves a safe and flexible solution for all kinds of work in the offshore industry.
