Ouyang Launches Wind Turbine Installation Vessel (Photos)

China’s Ouyang Offshore has launched its wind turbine installation vessel, OuYang 1, at Dayang Offshore Equipment’s yard in Jiangsu, China.

Further, the Chinese shipowner has awarded Aqualis Offshore a contract to supervise the construction of a second wind turbine installation vessel, OuYang 2.

Ouyang Offshore’s wind turbine installation vessel is a four-legged, DP1, self-propelled vessel with a working depth of 50 meters. It can house up to 75 people and is suitable for offshore wind turbine installation and maintenance work.

“We are very pleased with the launch of the OuYang 1 wind turbine installation vessel. It has been completed on time, at the right quality and on budget, with safe execution throughout the project,” said Chen Lin, Deputy General Manager at Ouyang Offshore.

Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, supervised the construction of the OuYang 1. The company’s on-site team monitored and supervised the construction of the wind turbine installation vessel, to ensure that all work was carried out in accordance with the contract specifications plus flag and class requirements.

Aqualis Offshore’s offices in Shanghai and Singapore managed the construction supervision for OuYang 1 and will now take on the same role for the OuYang 2. The value of the new contract has not been disclosed.

“To be trusted with another construction supervision contract is the strongest confirmation that Ouyang Offshore is pleased with our performance on OuYang 1. Ouyang Offshore is an ambitious and fast-growing company and we are proud to support them at another wind turbine installation vessel project,” said Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.
