The unique hull design and longer lines allow for better transit speed and efficiency, saving time and cost for the ship owner and their clients.
Four sister vessels were originally ordered, the first ship names were Crest Andromeda 1, Crest Andromeda 2, Crest Andromeda 3 and Crest Andromeda 5. All vessels have changed names and owner. In addition to PSV duties, some of the vessels are also prepared with increased accommodation and provisions for crane and ROV installation, which give the vessels the opportunity to trade in the IMR market.
The shipbuilding company, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS), is a subsidiary to China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC). In 2017, the four PSV newbuilds under construction were transferred to Tianjin CSSC CCB Investment Management, an asset management company and another subsidiary of CSSC.
The vessel was delivered on 1 May 2021. Owned by Sinoocean, she will be sailing under Chinese flag in the South China Sea oil field. Same as her sisters, she is joining the COSL fleet.
