The ZPMC shipyard, China, has reached a new milestone in the construction of the 'JSD 6000' pipelay derrick and heavy lifting vessel with the installation of the vessel's J-lay tower in early September 2021. The 'JSD 6000' is currently in her last months of construction before entering the market in 2022.

This customised ULSTEIN SOC5000 design has unique features as it combines a 6,000t main crane with both a centreline positioned S-lay system over the stern and an off-centre J-lay system via a moonpool.

'ALFA LIFT'

At the same time, the OHT 'Subway Alfa Lift' vessel is taking shape nicely. Based on the patented Ulstein Alfa Lift design, the vessel has been dedicatedly developed to serve the global offshore wind market. Because of her capabilities, OHT ASA has with this vessel been awarded the contract to install the wind turbine foundations for the world's largest offshore windfarm Dogger Bank A & B. Further she will be the world's first monohull vessel able to perform heavy lift crane operations with her main deck submerged in offshore conditions. 'Subway Alfa Lift' is featuring a vast open deck and a 3000 mt heavy lift crane, and is planned for delivery early next year.

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.
