UK: North Sea Giant Receives Vessel of the Year Award for 2012

The prestigious Offshore Support Vessel of the Year Award for 2012 was recently given to the North Sea Giant, which was built to DNV class at the Metalships & Docks shipyard in Vigo, Spain.

Introduced in 2010, the Offshore Support Journal Awards have been very well received by the industry and this award recognises the owner, designer and builder of an offshore support vessel that has been delivered in the past calendar year and is considered to have set an industry benchmark through innovative design and efficient operation.

The North Sea Giant is considered to be the largest offshore vessel of this type ever built, with her overall length of 156m, beam of 30m and installed power of more than 22MW. The vessel was given the prize for her innovative features, which include advanced dynamic positioning (DP) capability for DP operations based on a high redundancy level and high propulsion power.
