The vessel’s 1,500m² open deck space and deck strength 10 ton/m² and a smaller area at 650 m2, creates a good platform for transport of equipment and tools to and from oil- and subsea fields, prepared for world‐wide operations in the less deep and ultra-deep oil and gas sector projects.

The vessel will be built according to Det Norske Veritas class with the new SPS code; DNVGL + 1A1, EO, SPS, DSV-SAT, Diving System-SAT, NAUT-OSV(A), CLEAN DESIGN, DYNPOS AUTRO, COMF-C(3) V(3), ICE C, CRANE, HELDK-SH, DK(+), BIS, Winterized Basic.

“We are very pleased to sign this contract”, states Sales Director of Marin Teknikk Richard Gjerde. “We feel comfortable with the experience and knowledge in UDS, and have been working close with UDS the last year to develop one of the largest and advanced DP3 diving vessels in the offshore industry. This contract shows again MT’s strong position in the OSV market and that we are among the world’s leading designers of advanced diving & construction vessels.”

“With only 30 similarly-sized but older vessels in this class worldwide, and the requirement in the industry for safe yet fast-response vessels, UDS is poised to deliver such high standards of quality to the deep and ultra-deep water projects. The “Red Class 6027” combines the practicality, safety, reliability, efficiency and impressive subsea technology. We are confident that it will exceed the expectations of oil majors and offshore operators,” says Sheldon Hutton, Chief Executive Officer of UDS.
