See how you can save time with smarter tooling systems
What if you can reduce time and cost on setting up your ship automation system by using configurable functionality and dedicated tools?
Our innovative designs, finishing quality and a delivery date to place trust in, are great benefits to the ship owner. Since our start-up 100 years ago, Ulstein Verft has gained a solid reputation for building sophisticated, high-quality vessels. We keep securing on-time deliveries, over and over again.
The Norwegian maritime cluster is one of the world’s most complete clusters. Well established in the marine and offshore markets, the cluster companies have been introduced to other markets, such as the offshore wind market. The synergy opportunities are high and rising.

Offshore Wind Farms are being established further from shore. At some point, overnight stays for the service technicians become necessary, and the transport normally done by Crew Transfer Vessels must be replaced by other transport tools. SOVs are becoming the new standard.
Operational feedback shows that SOV crews choose to operate the vessels in astern mode up to 75% of the time at offshore wind farms. This number is very likely to increase further on the ‘Windea La Cour’ and the ‘Windea Leibniz’ vessels due to their X-STERNs.
3 reasons why ULSTEIN X-CONNECT™ can make your shipbuilding project a success.
As the internet of things are challenging the industry and altering the way we work, ship operations will also be influenced. With new possibilities of live-data streaming from ship to shore, ship operations will get a new, awaited and much more economical and secure standard in the years to come.
For generations, we have delivered ship designs to service oil and gas installations in the world’s harshest sea areas. Offshore wind is a new segment in the offshore family, and the knowledge of how the weather can impact the vessel is of great value when developing designs and solutions for offshore renewables.
Offshore wind energy generation is one means to reach international climate goals. ULSTEIN has been developing offshore wind designs since 2006. The designs draw on our broad experience in oil and gas, and range from new turbine installation concepts to foundation installation vessels and service operations vessels.
When the Windea La Cour, winner of the Offshore Renewables Award 2017, was on sea trial in June 2016, the Owner wanted to test the novel X-STERN. Watch video to see how she performed.
The offshore wind market is an abundant source of renewable energy. To reach international climate goals, major markets around the world have set goals to increase their percentage of renewable sources in their domestic electricity consumption. Consequently, many offshore wind farms are currently being established.
To get access to stronger and more stable winds, the wind farms are moving further from shore. Although this gives an increased output from the farm, it leads to some additional technical challenges. There are five stages in the life of an offshore wind farm.
30% reduction in the overall production cost is necessary for the Offshore Wind Energy Generation industry to become subsidy free and competitive with coal and gas. SOVs hold a large amount of Operations and Maintenance costs, and increased operational effectiveness of SOVs contributes to the 30% reduction in LCOE.
Cruise and yachts from ULSTEIN are developed to satisfy a modern explorer and traveller. Our vessels have the highest seakeeping standards, and our designs can be customised to any customer specific wish.
Based on a passion for aesthetics and technology, an Ulstein yacht is characterized by her organic lines and immaculate quality, and a stunning look that places her in a league of her own.
The sophisticated ships designed by ULSTEIN has cruised the seas of the world for decades, enduring all conditions. Our cruise vessels are based on our experience from the harshest of climates. The combination of classy ship lines and the overall luxury results in a vessel for unforgettable adventures.
A vessel with the X-BOW lines from ULSTEIN is unique, and very different from the usual cruise vessels. The seakeeping characteristics have an impact on comfort, safety, efficiency and operability. And then comes the distinctive looks!
The ULSTEIN series of cruise vessels combines the offshore tough with a luxury touch. The implementation of the patented X-BOW offshore design ensures that the crew and passengers will have a comfortable journey in any weather, being close to nature whilst protected, on an extraordinary vessel.
An expedition cruise can be to venture the remoteness of the world, spotting rare species and exploring the wilderness. The food is delicious, drinks plentiful, the relax areas splendid and the craft offers a comfortable transport in all weather conditions. With the patented X-BOW, the journey will be even more comfy.
The amount of available data from vessels is growing. Control systems on board vessels contain large amounts of measuring points with a high sampling rate. This gives several valuable effects and can turn business at sea greener, safer and more profitable with new exciting possibilities.
