In June 2018, a shipbuilding agreement was signed between Nexans and Ulstein on a large, DP3, CLV vessel designed by Skipsteknisk. The hull construction started in February 2019. The 149.9 m long and 31 m wide ‘Nexans Aurora’ will be working in the offshore renewables market, installing subsea cables including cables connecting offshore wind farms to the grid and interconnector systems.

Snow-covered mountain tops, green hillsides and a bright sun on a blue sky make a perfect frame for the lady in red, the CLV vessel ‘Nexans Aurora’, on her sea trial. A sunny mood also characterizes the atmosphere on board the vessel.
