Ulstein is currently conducting outfitting and commissioning of the Acta Auriga in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

Acta Auriga recently won a contract to service Offshore Breeze Energy’s Bard Offshore 1 wind farm in the German North Sea. The two-year charter will see the vessel perform logistical support for maintenance activities at the 400MW wind farm, operating out of Emden.

The 93.4 meter long Acta Auriga is an Ulstein-designed X-bow & X-stern DP2 OSV equipped with SMST motion compensated gangway with integrated elevator and crane functionality. It is able to perform 3D compensated lifts with its 6t SMST 3D crane and is equipped with a fuel-efficient drive system.

The vessel comprises covered warehousing facilities, integrated people and cargo logistics and stepless approach to the offshore installations. A total of 120 people can stay onboard in its 80 cabins.

Ulstein is expected to deliver the vessel at the end of Q1 2018, after which it will undergo trials and commence its works at the offshore site.

Upon delivery, Acta Auriga will join Acta Orion, her semi-sister vessel, and as such form the second vessel in the Acta fleet dedicated for W2W, offshore logistics and accommodation services for clients in the offshore renewable industry.
