    Island Offshore confirms order for construction vessel

    Vessel & ROV News // January 2, 2013

    Island Ventures II LLC, a partnership between Edison Chouest Offshore and Island Offshore, has confirmed that it has signed a contract with Ulstein Verft in Norway for construction of a multipurpose construction vessel of the SX-121 design.

    The vessel, which will be delivered in May 2014, will be an extended version of Island Constructor and Island Intervention and have accommodation for 130 persons, a 250 tonne crane and will be prepared for a Module Handling Tower.

    "Special emphasis have been put into designing a safe working deck with ample freeboard and also a heavy lift deck with lower freeboard to make this vessel a perfect 'crossover' between through-moon-pool activities and over-the-side crane work," said Island Offshore.
