Norway: Joint Naming Ceremony for Rem Hrist and Rem Mist ,Ulstein Design Vessels

 

The twin vessels Rem Hrist and Rem Mist have kept together ever since their keel laying at 1 September 2009. Today, they will be named in a joint ceremony.

Yard number 288 Rem Hrist has just completed her test trials, and captain Ole Petter Nygjerde at Remøy Shipping finds the ship very promising: “According to Statoil´s definition, this is a large PSV (approx 1,000 sq m cargo deck), and a ship that is packed with equipment. I am personally very satisfied after the test trials, the result looks good. The X-BOW® is a completely new and exciting experience for me, and I look forward to trying this out in the North Sea, says Nygjerde.

The ship is very compact, and project manager Ronny Dimmen says that 136 000 metres of cable and 14-15 000 metres of piping are installed on board. “We have never constructed a PSV with such a complicated cargo system before”, he says, and refers to the multi-cargo tanks for liquids and solid materials. The tank system generates a lot of extra pipes, valves etc.

“I must say that it is amazing to see the impressive paint work that is performed in the compact tank area”, comments the captain. “It was difficult even to control the paint work, and the paint work is splendidly done. I wish to honour all the painters particularly, and also the carpentry work which is brilliant, stresses Nygjerde.

Rem Hrist is scheduled for delivery this month and Rem Mist in May. Both will work on eight-year contracts for Statoil in the North Sea. Hence the name of the ships: In the North Sea oil fields and platforms often bear Norse names, and Hrist and Mist were two of Odin’s Valkyries that served mead to the gods.
