NOV has been awarded contracts for the equipment and design of a GustoMSC™ NG-16000X wind turbine installation jack-up vessel for Eneti.
This will be Eneti’s second next-generation jack-up vessel, and the contracts include an option for an additional jack-up vessel.
NOV will provide the design and jacking system for the vessel, which will be built at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering shipyard in South Korea. Delivery is scheduled for Q2 2025.
“We worked closely with Eneti to have their first NG-16000X ready for construction, and now the second is ordered according to plan,” said Commercial Director of GustoMSC Jan-Mark Meeuwisse. “Eneti also acquired the shares of Seajacks, expanding their fleet with five existing GustoMSC-designed jack-ups. This, combined with the two NG-16000X new builds, shows Eneti’s commitment to this offshore wind installation market.”
