ULSTEIN design no. 1 is back


Two vessels are currently at Ulstein Verft for aftermarket services, and a third is arriving shortly. One of these is the 'Olympic Hercules', a milestone vessel to ULSTEIN. She was the very first ULSTEIN design, and her delivery marked the opening of our dock hall, in January 2002.

The AHTS vessel, ‘Olympic Hercules’, is situated in the outer dock for maintenance, while the RLWI vessel ‘Island Frontier’ is quayside for various amendments and mounting of equipment.

Additionally, Olympic Shipping and Ulstein Verft have signed a contract for services on the AHTS ‘Olympic Zeus’, owned by Olympic Shipping. This vessel will arrive the yard in April.

‘Olympic Hercules’ is docked for a full, 10-year, classing. The propeller system will be maintained, this involves disassembling the propellers, shafts and rudders. In addition, there is a varied list of minor jobs, such as pipe replacements, rust treatment, painting and general care. The vessel is managed by Olympic Shipping.

The delivery of 'Olympic Hercules' in January 2002 marked the opening of our new dock hall. At the same time, it marked the introduction of ULSTEIN designed vessels to the market. ‘Olympic Hercules’ was the very first of more than 100 ULSTEIN designs ordered or delivered today.
The Island Offshore vessel, ‘Island Frontier’, is moored for various repairs and the mounting of equipment for new well assignments. This includes the installations of HC Vent equipment, the disassembly and assembly of tower winches, and the installation of a new generator. All yard production areas are involved, as the job requires rigging, machine work and electrical work. According to plan, the ship will be leaving Ulsteinvik next week.
