The ship investment company Blue Ship Invest (BSI), a part of Ulstein Group, ordered ten platform supply vessels of the PX121 design in the period 2010-2014. Eight were acquired by Nordic American Offshore (NAO). These have later been sold to various ship owners.
'Blue Storm' was delivered to BSI on 19 January 2015, and further to Nordic American Offshore (NAO) on 26 January 2015, together with a sister vessel, 'Blue Viking.' The name of the vessel was changed to NAO Storm.
The vessel became number 7 in NAO’s fleet of PX121 designs, and is quite similar to the six previous vessels, apart from its adaptation to the Norwegian Maritime Authority’s emergency manual NMD rescue (200), and alterations to satisfy requirements for oil recovery, minor outfitting changes and the installation of a larger crane.
Three of the Hermitage Offshore fleet was sold to Aurora Offshore and changed name.
2015-2016: The final two of the ten BSIvessels, Blue Queen and Blue King, were delivered to Blue Ship Invest.
2019: Nordic American Offshore changed its name to Hermitage Offshore Services Ltd, which became effective on June 4, 2019. All the vessels changed their names to "Hermit" prefix.
2020: All vessels in the Hermitage Offshore fleet were acquired by Pearl Bidco AS, a company owned by DNB and SEB.
2022: All vessels that were owned by Hermitage Offshore are sold to Borealis Maritime.
2022: Later that year, Hermit Storm, Hermit Power, Hermit Protector and Hermit Thunder have changed owner ship and name again. The new owner is Aurora Offshore and the vessels are named Aurora Storm, Aurora Power, Aurora Protector and Aurora Thunder.
