Hull construction on Acta Marine’s new wind farm construction support vessel (CSV) passed the halfway mark this week at Crist shipyard in Poland, Acta Marine informed, adding that the work is progressing well and on schedule.
The hull construction of the company’s new new Ulstein SX195 walk-to-work vessel started in February 2017, shortly after the vessel was ordered.
The completed hull is expected to be towed out of Crist to Ulsteinvik, Norway, in early November 2017. Once it arrives to Norway, Ulstein Verft will complete the outfitting of the vessel and the installation of an SMST-provided mission equipment: motion compensated gangway and 3D crane.
Delivery of the construction support vessel (CSV) is slated for the end of the first quarter of 2018.
The CSV vessel is measuring 93.4 metres in length and is 18 metres wide, and can accommodate up to 120 people in 80 cabins.
Acta Marine intends to use the vessel in addition to its existing CSV Acta Orion on offshore wind construction projects, as well as decommissioning and oil and gas services.
