Simon Møkster Shipping’s new platform supply vessel is custom built for operations in arctic areas and is unique in its kind. Now it’s ready to start working for Eni at the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.
The new vessel Stril Barents is delivered from Vard Aukra to Simon Møkster Shipping. Cooperation between VARD, Simon Møkster Shipping and Eni, has resulted in a unique vessel that meets all requirements for operation under extreme conditions in the Barents Sea. The gas-driven vessel is of VARD 1 06 design and has combined platform supply and emergency response capabilities. It is the first time this type of ship is built. Hans Gunnar Hansen, Yard Director of Vard Aukra, is proud of the new ship:
- The project has been exciting, advanced and it has developed us as a company. By being solution-oriented and having a common goal in optimizing the product, we have together developed a ship with unique capacities that will ensure safety around the Goliat platform and its personnel.
