At Simek, the ship will be further outfitted and completed before its sea trials and delivery in May 2014 to Krúnborg Offshore.

The new building will have a diesel-electric propulsion system of 4 generators with approximately 6.490 kW. These supply power to two electric-powered propellers each of 1,600 kW aft. Estimated speed is approximately 14,5 knots. In addition, the ship is equipped with one bow thruster and two azimuth thrusters.
