The vessel, featuring the X-STERN hull, is the first of two SOVs built at Ulstein Verft in Norway which Bernhard Schulte Offshore will deliver to Siemens.

The vessel functions as a platform for wind farm operations and maintenance support, technician accommodation and transport, and the provision of access to installations offshore.

In August, Ulstein said it plans to launch the second SOV this month.
