Ulstein receives order for offshore wind support vessel
Germany-based Bernhard Schulte has ordered the construction of a service operation vessel (SOV) from Ulstein Verft.
The vessel will support the maintenance work of GE Renewable Energy at the German wind farm Merkur Offshore.
The project has been developed in cooperation with WINDEA Offshore, which is the Bernhard Schulte’s affiliate for offshore wind projects.
This will be the third SOV Ulstein Verft has built for Bernhard Schulte. The first two vessels were delivered in 2016 and 2017.
The vessel was designed by Ulstein Design and Solutions.
The vessel will be 93.4 metres long, 18 metres wide and is optimised for offshore wind. The vessel can accommodate up to 120 persons.
Delivery is expected in early 2020.
