The vessel will be deployed for the construction of the largest offshore wind farms, for servicing the oil and gas industry, and for the decommissioning of offshore installations.
With a total installed capacity of 44,180 kW, Orion will be equipped with a crane with a lifting capacity of 5,000 tonnes up to a height of more than 170 metres.
The 216.5-metre vessel features DP3 capability. It is expected to join the DEME fleet at the end of 2019.
