A few days ago, Acta Marine’s construction team attended a sober keel laying ceremony for their first newbuild Construction Service Operating Vessel (CSOV) at Tersan Shipyards in Turkey.
The vessel is the first of two next generation Methanol MDO/HVO powered DP2 CSOVs for Acta Marine at Tersan Shipyard. The design of the vessel SX216 has been developed exclusively and in close collaboration with Ulstein Design & Solutions AS.
The 89 metres long vessel will be equipped with an SMST provided motion compensated crane and a motion compensated gangway for safe personnel transfer in significant wave-heights up to 3.0 meters. The CSOV provides accommodation facilities for up to 135 people in 88 cabins. In addition to the Methanol MDO/HVO engines the vessels feature a battery power storage system creating further energy efficiency and CO2 reduction.
In light of the tragic earthquakes in Turkey and Syria Acta Marine has donated to Tersan’s “Ship of Hope” funding initiative which organizes and provides direct support to aid and comfort the people in the disaster areas. Source: Acta Marine
