CSOV steel cutting ceremony for Ulstein Verft's yard number 322

Starting its journey from the drawing board to reality: On Thursday, 16 May 2024, the steel cutting ceremony was held at the Crist hull yard for Ulstein Verft's yard number 322. The CSOV vessel is based on a TWIN X-STERN platform and has been designed by Ulstein Design & Solutions AS. 

The contracts on the construction of two Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) newbuilds were announced in January 2024. The contracts were signed by Ulstein Verft and JP Morgan Asset Management, the latter on behalf of institutional investors, and include two options.

Hybrid power solutions

The 89.6 m vessels are based on the ULSTEIN SX222 design platform, adapted to the client's needs, including single cabins for 110 persons and total accommodation for 132 people. The vessels will be equipped with a hybrid battery propulsion system and be prepared for green methanol fuel to enable carbon-neutral operations. 

With a large, centrally positioned W2W motion-compensated gangway and elevator tower for personnel and cargo transfers, a 3D compensated crane with 5t lift capacity, and optimized on-board logistics with large storage capacities, the vessel will be ready for a vast range of operations, including Operation & Maintenance and construction support. The hull design translates to outstanding seakeeping capabilities in challenging weather and sea conditions.

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.
