Acta Marine Ordered Second CSV from Ulstein
Dutch offshore vessel owner Acta Marine has ordered a second construction support vessel at Ulstein Verft this week. This SX195 design is a DP2 Walk to Work Construction Support Vessel (CSV) for the offshore industry. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2019.
Acta has a CSV, the Acta Auriga, which is currently under construction at the yard and about to go for sea trials. Once delivered, it will go on a two-year charter with BARD Offshore.
Rob Boer, managing director at Acta Marine, commented: “Returning to Ulstein Verft with an order for a new sister vessel is a strong signal of the importance of the yard’s track record in quality and delivery precision, which is very important to us as ship owner and to our clients. We are quite convinced that the Acta SX195 vessels will create higher efficiency in offshore logistics operations and thus reduce the overall cost of constructing wind farms and, also, contribute towards a higher uptime of the installed base of offshore wind.
“Acta Marine is firmly positioned in the renewable, and offshore oil & gas, markets. They challenged us in designing a highly flexible and compact vessel, with high capacities for long-term operations in the field, and this vessel is soon to be completed. We look forward to co-operating with Acta Marine again, to bring forward another highly successful W2W construction support vessel,” states CEO Gunvor Ulstein, Ulstein Group.
