New Boat Landing System for ULSTEIN SX222 vessels.

We are proud to announce our contract for a new Boat Landing System for two OLYMPIC vessels build at ULSTEIN Verft. The new Boat Landing system will provide increased security when transferring personnel. "We have cooperated closely with both Ulstein and Olympic in the details of this new Boat Landing System and are very eager to start the work" states Per Arne Rindarøy, managing director of Aukra Maritime.

Enabling zero-emission in offshore wind

The ULSTEIN SX222 vessels have a length of 89.6m and a beam of 19.2m. They accommodate 126 people in 91 cabins. The vessels are prepared for future requirements at the offshore wind farms. The vessels are powered by diesel-electric propulsion with variable speed in combination with large battery energy storage systems. The vessels are prepared for methanol fuel and have available space for additional battery capacity for full-electric repowering when the infrastructure for such is available. The hull shape and hybrid propulsion system will ensure high operational performances and seakeeping, and substantially reduced environmental footprint.

 

The vessels are planned for delivery during spring and summer 2024.
