The photo shows two sister offshore construction vessels (OCVs), Grand Canyon II and Grand Canyon III, being outfitted at Myklebust Verft for Ålesund-based ship owner Volstad Maritime.

The vessels are 126 m long, and with accommodation for 104 persons. The vessels are of ST 259 CD design from Skipsteknisk, and the first sister vessel Grand Canyon was delivered from Bergen Group to Volstad in 2012.

The Grand Canyon II, with deck area of 1650 square meters, and equipped with 250 t AHC offshore crane, was delivered by Kleven earlier in March this year, while its sister vessel is scheduled for delivery in June 2015.

In addition to the vessel’s 250 t crane for subsea installation work, the vessel also has a hangar for port and starboard launching of WROV’s, ROV workshop and maintenance area and offices and meeting rooms for ROV operations.
