The vessel is a VARD 3 19 design, developed by Vard Design in Ålesund. After the vessel’s hull is completed in Romania, the final outfitting of the vessel is scheduled for late 2015, at Vard Brattvaag in Norway.

Vard is building this offshore subsea construction vessel for the Norwegian vessel owner Solstad. The vessel will become the largest in the Solstad’s fleet of 46 wholly owned or partly owned vessels.

The vessel will be about 178 meters long, have a beam of 33 meters, a deck area of more than 2.500 m2 and will be able to accommodate 180 people.

Solstad has agreed with Italian contractor, Saipem, to charter the vessel for a minimum of 8 years from delivery, scheduled for 2Q 2016.
