Tersan Shipyard performed ceremonial first cut of NB1121 Acta Marine’s second Offshore Wind Farm Support Vessel
Tersan Shipyard performed ceremonial first cut of NB1121, Acta Marine’s second Offshore Wind Farm Support Vessel. The company announced this on its Facebook page.
Acta Marine orders the two first ULSTEIN TWIN X-STERN® Construction Service Operating Vessels with design from Ulstein Design & Solutions AS. The design contract also includes options for two vessels, all four of the ULSTEIN SX216 design. The vessels will be delivered with dual-fuel methanol/diesel power generators.
The CSOVs for Acta Marine have a hybrid power solution, with green methanol intended as the main source of energy. The Dual-Fuel engines are supported by a battery package, integrated into the vessel in such a way as to allow the most fuel-efficient modes of operation, reduced maintenance costs and reduced emissions.
The offshore wind service vessel designs from Ulstein have been developed for effective support of the commissioning, operation and maintenance of the offshore wind farms.
The SX216 vessel has a length of 89,9m, a beam of 19,2m and accommodates up to 135 POB. It has a walk-to-work (W2W) motion compensated gangway for safe personnel transfer to the turbines, a 3D-motion-compensated crane for cargo transfer and it can carry a daughter craft for in-farm transfers.
