Acta Marine’s newbuild Ulstein SX195 walk to work vessel’s hull construction passed the halfway mark this week at Crist shipyard in Poland.
The company ordered the 120 PoB walk to work construction support vessel in January of this year and intends to use the vessel in addition to its existing CSV Acta Orion on offshore wind construction projects for a variety of clients and/or related markets such as decommissioning and O&G services.
The hull construction started February 2017, and the completed hull is expected to be towed out of Crist to Ulsteinvik, Norway early November 2017. Thereafter, Ulstein Verft will complete the outfitting of the vessel and the installation of the SMST provided mission equipment – motion compensated gangway and 3D crane.
The work is said to be progressing well and on schedule, with delivery slated for end Q1 2018.
