Croatian shipbuilder Uljanik Shipyard has delivered the multi-purpose, self-propelled jack-up vessel Apollo to GeoSea.
Apollo is the first self-propelled platform built in Uljanik and the first highly sophisticated ship of this type built in Croatia, the Pula-based shipbuilder said.
The Apollo platform is based on the GustoMSC NG-5500X design. The jack-up is equipped with four 106.8 metres long legs that allow it to work at depths of down to 70 metres.
With a deadweight of 5,196.2 tonnes, the vessel is 89.32m long, 42m wide, 8m high and is able to reach a speed of 11.92 knots powered by the main engines: 4 x ABC 2,688kW and 2 x ABC 1,512kW.
Apollo offers standard accommodation for 90 people, and is intended for various operations on all seas of the world, such as wind turbine installation, heavy load transportation and assembly, and can also be used as an accommodation platform.
The vessel will sail under the Luxembourg flag and will be one of Uljanik’s key references in the world for building complex, highly sophisticated ships, the shipbuilder said.
