A steel-cutting ceremony has been held for Nexans Aurora, a new DP3 cable laying vessel ordered by Nexans.

The hull is being built at Crist, Poland, while the engineering, outfitting and system integration, equipment preparation, testing, sea trials, and finalising will be carried out at Norway’s Ulstein Verft.

The Skipsteknisk-designed Nexans Aurora will be outfitted for power cable laying, including bundle laying, cable jointing, repair, cable system protection, and trenching.

Delivery is scheduled for 2021.
