Stewart Marine Orders Neptune Marine EuroCarrier 2611

UK-based marine services company Stewart Marine has contracted Neptune Marine to build a new EuroCarrier 2611, which is to be named Viking Energy.

To meet Stewart Marine’s operational requirements, Neptune will customise the 26-metre long workboat with a DP1 system.

Stewart Marine is based in Fife, Scotland. The Viking Energy is said to fit in with the company's vision to deliver a broad range of marine services for the offshore renewables industry, including cable lay operations, subsea cable protection and offshore wind farm support.

“Wind and tidal renewable energy is the future and it is our goal at Stewart Marine to be part of many exciting new projects and concepts throughout the industry. Now we have an ideal vessel to offer our clients – the future is exciting and we are all looking forward to the arrival of the ‘Viking Energy’,” the company's owner Graham Stewart said.

Neptune will build the new EuroCarrier 2611 at its yard in Aalst, the Netherlands. Delivery is scheduled for April 2019.
