First Steel Cut for Acta Marine Second Methanol-Powered CSOV
The first steel has been cut for the second Construction Service Operations Vessel (CSOV) NB1121 ordered by Acta Marine at Tersan Shipyard in Türkiye.
Tersan Shipyard is building two DP2 CSOVs powered with methanol and MDO/HVO. The Dutch vessel owner signed a contract with the shipyard in June 2022.
Acta Marine has also reserved options for two additional CSOVs for delivery at a later stage.
The vessels are of the new SX-216 TWIN-X Stern design from Ulstein Design & Solutions AS that was exclusively designed for and in cooperation with Acta Marine.
The CSOVs will be 89 metres in length, 19 metres in width, and can accommodate 135 people in 85 cabins. The vessels will be equipped with SMST’s motion-compensated gangway systems, mounted on integrated towers with height adjustment and personnel/cargo lifts.
In addition, the vessels will feature SMST 3D-motion compensated cranes with six tonnes of lifting capacity. Cargo area is 500 square metres indoors and 500 square metres outdoors.
The first two vessels are planned to be delivered in the second and the third quarter of 2024.
The cutting ceremony for the first CSOV was held in January this year.
