Ulstein Design & Solutions B.V. has been awarded the design contract for a heavy transport vessel based on the ULSTEIN HX120 design. The client was not disclosed.
Earlier this Ulstein introduced the ULSTEIN HX104 and ULSTEIN HX120 HTV/feeder designs to meet the future demand for heavy transport vessels and feeder vessels, driven by offshore wind developments across the globe.
The ULSTEIN HX120 design offers a well-balanced combination of (long) transit efficiency, payload and low CAPEX/OPE. Vessel displacement and stability is carefully tuned to minimise vessel motions. In combination with its high capacity ballast system, it is also able to perform float-over operations.
The design will be further customised to meet client specific requirements, the company said. Source: Ulstein
