Ulstein IMR vessels delivered to NeptuneVessel & ROV News // November 2, 2011
The Ulstein-designed SX130 IMR vessels Neptune Despina and Neptune Larissa were named in a joint ceremony on 26 October 2011 at Zhejiang Shipyard in China.
Neptune Despina was delivered on 27 October. The second vessel is to be delivered in mid November. They were built for Neptune Offshore in Norway.
Ulstein supplied design, detailed documentation and main equipment for these vessels, including products such as main switchboards, bridge and control room consoles, integrated alarm and surveillance system, navigation equipment and power management system.
The vessels are 98.6m long with a breadth of 19m. ”Both vessels are equipped with a moonpool and an integrated ROV hangar and can perform subsea operations such as inspection, maintenance and repair in deep water. The vessels have Clean Design and Comfort V3 class and dynamic positioning to DP 2 standard," said Lars Ståle Skoge, sales and marketing manager in Ulstein Design & Solutions.
The exhaust is released through the ship's side close to the waterline, freeing space in the wheelhouse, and allowing for a full, unobstructed 360º view.
Zhejiang Shipyard is part of the Sinopacific Shipbuilding Group. In September, it delivered another Ulstein designed vessel, the PX105 PSV Bourbon Front.
