Acta Centaurus Arrives Home
Acta Marine has taken delivery of its new walk-to-work vessel Acta Centaurus from Ulstein Verft.
The newbuild vessel began its sea trials at the beginning of April after leaving Ulstein Verft’s construction site in Norway.
According to Acta Marine’s Managing Director Rob Boer, Acta Centaurus will now get ready to commence work in the offshore wind sector.
“Building on experience with our first Ulstein Walk to Work construction support vessel Acta Auriga delivered to us last year, we are highly confident that Acta Centaurus will be very well suited to operate in the offshore, and specifically the renewable market,” said Boer.
Acta Centaurus has a 3,200t load capacity, a 6m draft, and can provide accommodation for up to 120 persons.
The 93m long vessel is also equipped with a hybrid battery pack, hull designs X-BOW and X-STERN, a helideck, an SMST motion compensated gangway, and a telescopic traffic compensation system.
It has now joined Acta Auriga and Acta Orion as the third vessel in the Acta fleet dedicated to walk-to-work, offshore logistics and accommodation services for clients in the offshore renewable and offshore energy industry.
