General – CSOVs
Norway-based Olympic contracts two firm Construction Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) and two options for the same at Ulstein Verft.
The vessels have hybrid battery propulsion and are prepared for methanol fuel to enable zero emissions. They are based on the ULSTEIN SX222 design with TWIN X-STERN.
Olympic has a fleet that operates in the subsea service and renewable energy markets.
The new vessels have a length of 89.6m and a beam of 19.2m. They accommodate 126 people in 91 cabins.
The vessels are powered by diesel-electric propulsion with variable speed in combination with large battery energy storage systems and are prepared for methanol fuel and have available space for additional battery capacity for full-electric repowering when the infrastructure for such is available.
The hull shape and hybrid propulsion system will ensure high operational performances and seakeeping, and substantially reduced environmental footprint.
The vessels are planned for delivery during spring and summer 2024.
