Last Saturday, on March 24th, a naming ceremony for Olympic Shipping’s new Platform Supply Vessel took place in Ålesund. The naming of the vessel, now called Olympic Energy was performed by Godmother Marianne Synnes.

After the ceremony, the ship was open to the public and about 1500 people used the chance to study the ship up close.

Olympic Shipping AS, STX OSV and the Training Office of Maritime Studies were represented at the deck, where those who were interested could get further information about the ship and job opportunities in the business.  Olympic Energy is a PSV 06 LNG design, to be delivered from STX OSV, later this month. The vessel is designed as a platform supply vessel for worldwide operations and transport of general cargo for offshore industry.

The vessel is of environmental friendly design, with low resistance hull shape designed for high speed and low fuel consumptions. Its main engines are driven by liquefied natural gas.

In their second contract announcement so far today, Norway-based STX OSV adds to their offshore vessel newbuild orderbook with a NOK 650 million contract for the design and construction of an Offshore Subsea Construction Vessel (“OSCV”) for Norway-based offshore vessel owner, DOF ASA.

The vessel is of OSCV 11 design, developed by STX OSV in Ålesund, Norway. It will be designed with the new innovative moon pool concept from STX OSV.

STX OSV Design has together with Marintek and DOF Management just completed an extensive research program supported by the Norwegian Research Council, focusing on safe design and operation of moon pools. The results of the three years’ R&D program have been incorporated into the new moon pool design for the OSCV.  Compared to vessels with conventional moon pool design, the vessel can operate in a wider range of weather conditions in a safer manner for the vessel’s crew and equipment.

The overall length of the vessel will be approximately 121 meters with a beam of 22 meters. It will be equipped with one 250 ton offshore crane and two ROV systems. The vessel will have accommodation for 100 persons.

Delivery is scheduled from STX OSV Søviknes in Norway in 2Q 2013. The hull of the vessel will be delivered from STX OSV Tulcea in Romania.

DOF was founded in 1981 and is today an international group of companies which owns and operates a modern fleet of offshore / subsea vessels. The DOF group’s diversified fleet consists of innovative vessels specialized for different operational purposes; Platform Supply Vessels (PSV), Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessels (AHTS) and Construction Support /Subsea ROV Vessels (CSV).
