New Acta W2W Vessel Continues Stellar Tradition

The construction of Acta Marine’s third walk-to-work vessel and second Ulstein SX195 design is progressing well and has reached complete hull beam at Crist shipyard in Poland, the Dutch company said.

The new vessel will sail under the name Acta Centaurus, after the constellation Centaurus.

The completed hull is expected to be towed from Crist, Poland to Ulsteinvik, Norway at the end of November.

Thereafter Ulstein Verft will complete the outfitting of the vessel and the installation of the SMST provided mission equipment – a motion compensated gangway and a 3D crane.

Delivery of Acta Centaurus is slated for the second quarter of 2019.

The vessel will provide accommodation for up to 120 persons and will be powered by a hybrid battery package.

In addition, Acta Centaurus will also be equipped with a helideck.

Upon delivery, the vessel will join Acta Auriga and Acta Orion, and as such form the third vessel in the Acta fleet dedicated for walk-to-work, offshore logistics and accommodation services in the offshore renewable industry.
