Ulstein Verft has sold the construction vessel Karianne of SX121 type design to Island Offshore. The vessel was completed on time from ULSTEIN in the fourth quarter of 2010. The vessel was originally contracted by the shipping company Marine Subsea, which could not to take delivery of her after completion.
CEO Gunvor Ulstein says she is very pleased that this advanced construction vessel will be in the hands of an experienced and established shipping company.
– More and more oil installations are now seabed facilities, and we’re seeing an increasing demand for subsea and construction vessels. We are confident that Island Offshore will benefit from this vessel’s performance, says Ulstein.
The 25-meter wide and 120-meter long vessel can accommodate 100 persons. The vessel is fitted with a tower for module handling, moonpool, ROV hangar, offshore crane, helipad, and a diesel-electric propulsion system. The vessel is also equipped with ULSTEIN COM™ and ULSTEIN IAS™.
