Ulstein: Number of PX121 PSV designs sold reaches 30

Ulstein Group has reported that due to company’s latest ship design contract for Wuchang Shipbuilding and Otto Offshore, the total number of PX121 PSV designs have reached 30.

The first vessels of this design started operations in 2012. The vessels are medium-sized platform supply vessels (PSVs), and have received excellent feedback due to a favourable combination of fuel-efficiency and load capacity.

Feedback from one of the ship owners states that, “The PX121 vessel is part of the new generation of PSVs and offers, especially in harsher environments, a unique combination of world class client service delivery, high efficiency and impressive crew comfort.”

The first PX121 designed vessels were constructed at Ulstein Verft.

“Ulstein Group has close to 100 years of shipbuilding experience. Also, Ulstein Group has ownership interests in, and shipping expertise from, vessels delivered by our yard, Ulstein Verft,” comments Tore Ulstein, deputy CEO and Head of Markets and Innovations in Ulstein Group, continuing:

“Our design success can in some ways be explained by having our own yard, at which the prototypes, such as the PX121s, are constructed. We can bring customers in, demonstrating the complete innovation cycle on-site, from concept drawings till state-of-the art offshore vessels. Our professional team work continuously in developing our designs and solutions for the future, in close dialogue and cooperation with ship owners, suppliers, classification societies and state authorities.”
