The construction of Acta Marine’s new built Ulstein SX195 walk to work vessel is progressing well and on schedule at Crist shipyard in Poland. Acta Marine announced yesterday that the vessel will sail under the name ACTA AURIGA.
Upon delivery the ACTA AURIGA will join ACTA ORION, her semi-sister vessel, and as such form the second vessel in the Acta fleet dedicated for walk to work, offshore logistics and accommodation services for a variety of clients in the offshore renewable industry.
The vessel is named after the constellation Auriga, Auriga means “the charioteer” in Latin. The charioteer plays a crucial role in logistics and support and is therefore indispensable in the fields of battle. This will also be the endeavour of ACTA AURIGA in offshore wind construction projects and/or related markets such as decommissioning and O&G services; the vessel will break new grounds in workability, in-field agility, offshore logistics and comfort on board for 120 persons combined with a low fuel consumption.
The completed hull is expected to be towed from of Crist, Poland 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. Delivery of Acta Marine’s ACTA AURIGA is slated for end Q1 2018.
Acta Marine will be present at Offshore Energy 2017 in Amsterdam Rai on the 10th and 11th of October. Feel free to drop by our stand 1.141 where we will be happy to tell you all about our ACTA AURIGA and other vessels and services and explain why we are the trusted marine support provider.
