Island Offshore orders offshore construction vessels together with Edison Chouest Offshore

Tuesday, Nov 26, 2013

Island Offshore and Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) has ordered two new offshore construction vessels (OCV) through the company Island Ventures II LLC.

The two vessels will be of ULSTEIN SX165 design; one to be built at Ulstein Verft in Norway and one at Edison Chouest’s own yard, LaShip, in the United States. The contract with the US yard also includes options. SX165 is designed to meet the requirements of the owners. The vessel is 145.7 metres long with a width of 28 metres and accommodation for 200 people.  She is equipped with two cranes that can lift 400 tons and 140 tons respectively, and is also featuring a large moon pool. In addition two smaller moon pools with ROVs are installed in a centrally located hangar.

This design will be the largest ever to be built at Ulstein Verft.

Island Offshore’s current fleet includes four vessels of ULSTEIN design. In addition a construction vessel for Island Ventures II LLC is currently under construction at Ulstein Verft, due for delivery in June 2014.
