First Ulstein Wind Farm SOV Breezing Through Sea Trials (Gallery)
Yno 309, Ulstein’s first wind farm service operation vessel (SOV) and the first of two ordered by Bernhard Schulte Offshore, left the yard for sea trials on Tuesday, 7 June, and the results so far are highly satisfactorily, the Norwegian ship designer and shipbuilder said.
“We are underway in testing for speed and manoeuvring, and will soon commence the tests for dynamic positioning. The vessel is performing splendidly,” said the sea trial captain, Børge André Berg.
The vessel is due for delivery at the end of this month, and will be working at the 600MW Gemini offshore wind farm on a charter for Siemens Wind Power Service.
