The cruise industry was set to a halt when the Covid-19 pandemic struck. Our fresh market study shows that the cruise industry is projected to experience substantial growth ahead.
The urgent push for more renewable energy production to achieve climate goals translates into many new offshore wind projects. Simultaneously, ambitious climate goals also call for vessels to be developed with solutions for zero-emission operations.
Trawling has always presented some challenges. The award-winning ECOFIVE solution from Bluewild is an ambitious venture that maintains high catch quality and is now being realised in a factory trawler developed by Ulstein Design & Solutions. An explanatory animation in this article describes the catch solution.
To answer the future need for more innovative and greener supply tonnage, we have applied our holistic design mindset to find the sweet spots between necessary capacities and reduced emissions. This led us to develop our first full-electric supply vessel for the offshore energy market.
Ulstein started to develop vessels for the offshore oil & gas industry in the 1970s, and dedicated vessels for the offshore wind industry after 2000. The next-generation offshore energy vessels must be flexible and able to work year-round, and we will see several crossover vessels for these two markets.
There is a large potential in the conversion of an offshore vessel: By redesigning it to another assignment or a whole new market the operational lifetime is prolonged, it is returned to the owner in a shorter time than waiting for a newbuild, and the CO2 emission savings are substantial when upgrading existing tonnage
