Two ULSTEIN Designs Nominated for OSJ Awards

The deepwater construction vessel ‘Aegir’ and the installation support vessel ‘Siem Moxie’, both are designed by ULSTEIN, are nominated for OSJ Awards.

The two ULSTEIN designed vessels are listed as nominees for the Offshore Support Journal 2014 Awards. Additionally, 3 of the 4 nominees for the OSJ Shipowner of the Year Award are ULSTEIN clients (Eidesvik Offshore, Island Offshore and Pacific Offshore). The winners will be announced at the 2014 OSJ Gala Award on 19 February in London. Votes can be submitted till 14 February.

The installation support vessel ‘Siem Moxie’, an ULSTEIN SX163 design, is nominated for the Offshore Renewables Award. The vessel is a unique windfarm support/installation support vessel, specially designed and equipped to allow quick and safe ‘walk to work’ access to offshore windturbine foundations and offshore platforms. The design marks a new milestone for ULSTEIN, as it is their first design for the offshore renewables segment to be built. The ship is currently under construction at the Fjellstrand yard.

Two ULSTEIN Designs Nominated for OSJ Awards

The other ULSTEIN designed nominee is Heerema’s deepwater construction vessel ‘Aegir’, competing for the Support Vessel of the Year Award. The ‘Aegir’, a customized ULSTEIN SOC 5000 design, is a versatile vessel that allows for quick change between various operational modes (J-lay, reellay, heavy lift). She has the unique capability of being able to execute complex infrastructure and pipeline projects in ultra deep water, while offering sufficient lifting capacity to install platforms in relatively shallow water. The range of operational modes allows its clients to execute projects with less vessels and sailing time, making a contribution to sustainable operations.
