The vessel design, with its efficient hull and system configuration, was developed in close cooperation between the shipping company Olympic and Ulstein Design & Solutions AS. It is based on the new TWIN X-STERN-design – the marine answer to "four-wheel- drive".

The design is notable for its dual stern configuration with main propellers at each end, which allows for superior manoeuvrability and motion and improves fuel efficiency. The power system is developed and delivered by Ulstein Power & Control. This solution combines a large battery system and variable speed generators for optimising power production together with propulsion converters and power distribution.
