Ulstein Orders Palfinger Kit for Acta Marine’s CSV Newbuilding
Palfinger Marine has signed a contract with Norway’s Ulstein Verft to deliver the complete winch package and a container handling system for the DP2 construction support vessel (CSV) being built for the Netherlands-based Acta Marine B.V.
The vessel is primarily aimed at the offshore wind market and carries the new SX195 design from Ulstein Design & Solutions.
The CSV is measuring 93.4 meters in length and is 18 meters wide, and can accommodate up to 120 people in 80 cabins.
In addition to the complete winch package, Palfinger Marine has been contracted to deliver a complete system for both skidding and securing of containers below deck.
The container handling system has been tailor designed to meet the requirements onboard this vessel, Palfinger Marine said.
Acta Marine ordered the CSV in January 2017, and the vessel is scheduled for delivery in early 2018.
Cargo area on the vessel is 500 square metres indoors, and 500 square metres outdoors.
The new CSV will provide for walk-to-work transfer of personnel and cargo, efficient and safe in significant wave-heights (Hs) up to 3 metres, Ulstein said.
