Ulstein launches its record vessel

On Tuesday night, yard number 302, an offshore construction vessel for Island Offshore/Edison Chouest Offshore, was launched from the dock hall at Ulstein Verft. Currently, the heli deck is being mounted. Measuring close to 160 m in length, and with at beam of 30 m, she is the largest offshore vessel so far from Ulstein Verft. 

The vessel is jointly owned by Norway-based Island Offshore and US-based Edison Chouest Offshore, the latter will be managing the vessel. Thus, the vessel carries the Edison Chouest colours and logo.

The vessel was redesigned in the engineering phase, and thus, the final vessel increased both in length and beam, resulting in increased deck area and tank capacity. 

“Ulstein Verft has a unique position by the in-house multidisciplinary know-how of ship designs and a large technical department. This give our customers added value in which it enables us to take on such major change orders,” says project manager in Ulstein Verft, Per Svein Brekke.
