Wind Energy – Conversion
I.T. International Telecom Marine SRL (IT) has chosen VARD to convert the platform supply vessel (PSV) IT Infinity into a cable laying vessel.
The PSV was built at Vard Brattvaag and delivered to Volstad Maritime in 2008 under the name Volstad Princess. SD Standard Drilling acquired the vessel in 2017 before it was sold to IT in 2021 and was renamed IT Infinity. Now, the vessel returns to VARD for the conversion.
“We are proud that IT chose VARD as their partner for this conversion. We will now use our core competence and long experience in design and construction of advanced Cable Laying Vessels to meet IT Telecom`s needs in the market. This project demonstrates VARD’s strength with our fully integrated value chain and it confirms our position in the aftermarket,” says Wilhelm Eggesbø SVP Vard Services in VARD.
The work will be carried out by Vard Brattvaag in Norway and the vessel will be delivered in Q3 2024.
