In close cooperation with Jumbo, the new design is developed as a customised version of the ULSTEIN HX104 design. The vessel will be the largest X-BOW® vessel to date and with its two Huisman mast cranes of 2,200 and 400 tons, respectively, will be capable to serve both the offshore wind and the offshore oil and gas industry. To minimise the environmental footprint, the vessel features dual fuel engines, enabling to operate on LNG.

"We are proud that Jumbo has entrusted us to design their new offshore asset. Especially as the contract award resulted from a design competition," says Edwin van Leeuwen, Managing Director at Ulstein Design & Solutions B.V. "The lay-out of the vessel with the X-BOW® hull, results in a very cost efficient, safe and comfortable ship with excellent operational uptime and transit speed."

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.
