Nexans signed a deal with Ulstein Verft for the construction of the vessel back in July 2018.

The vessel arrived at Ulstein Verft in Norway this June for outfitting work.

Designed by Skipsteknisk, the ST-297 CLV has a 31m long beam and can accommodate up to 90 persons. It also has a 10,000t capacity split turntable and a deadweight of 17,000t.

Once delivered in 2021, Nexans Aurora will be able to perform power cable laying, including bundle laying, jointing and repair, and cable system protection and trenching.
