The backbone of marine support

Explore the dynamic capabilities of Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) and Oceangoing Tug Vessels, the stalwarts of the marine world. AHTS vessels excel in versatility and power, offering precise rig and platform positioning, robust towing strength, and substantial deck space for critical maritime operations. Their strong bollard pull makes them indispensable in demanding offshore environments.

In concert, Oceangoing Tugs demonstrate exceptional long-distance towing prowess in open waters. These vessels are critical for ensuring maritime safety, adept at towing disabled ships and conducting salvage operations efficiently and reliably.

AHTS and Oceangoing Tugs form the backbone of marine support, safeguarding operations in even the most challenging seas.

Thorium-powered: ULSTEIN THOR zero-emission ship concept sparks major interest

Since unveiling the Thorium-powered ULSTEIN THOR design in April 2022, we have been swept by a wave of interest in the concept vessel and its unparalleled potential and capabilities. Set in a polar cruise context, ULSTEIN THOR alone could generate over 50 GWh of energy in a single 150-day cruise campaign. The result would be a significant environmental impact in Antarctica, with over 32,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions prevented.
