Acta Marine’s new built Ulstein SX195 walk to work vessel’s hull construction has passed the halfway point this week at Crist shipyard in Poland.
According to the marine support services provider, the work on the vessel is progressing on schedule.
Acta Marine said that the hull construction started in February, and the completed hull is expected to be towed out of Crist to Ulsteinvik, Norway, in early November.
After that, Ulstein Verft will complete the outfitting of the vessel, and the installation of the SMST provided mission equipment – motion compensated gangway and 3D crane.
The company added that the Delivery of Acta Marine’s CSV-120 is scheduled for the end of the first quarter of 2018.
“The vessel will break new grounds in workability, in-field agility, offshore logistics, and comfort on board combined with a low fuel consumption,” said the company.
Acta Marine ordered the walk to work construction support vessel in January of this year and intends to use the vessel in addition to its existing CSV Acta Orion on offshore wind construction projects for a variety of clients and related markets such as decommissioning and oil and gas services.
The vessel is 93.4 meters long, 18 meters wide, and can accommodate up to 120 people in 80 cabins. It will be equipped with a dynamic motion compensated gangway system and a 3D-motion compensated crane with 6t lifting capacity. Also, the cargo area is 500 square meters indoors, and 500 square meters outdoors.
