Ship history

2015: Nominated 'Ship of the Year' by Skipsrevyen.

2017: Delivered on 17 january 2017. 'Island Venture' (IMO 9721786) is owned by Island Ventures 5 LLC, a joint venture between Edison Chouest Offshore (USA) and Island Offshore (Norway). 

The vessel was originally ordered as a vessel of 147.5m length and 28m in the beam. After the ship construction had started, it was decided to increase the deck area and tank capacities. The vessel is now measuring 160m by 30m. A 400t crane for operations at 4,000-metre depth as well as a 140t crane with 3,000-metre wire have been installed. The vessel has three moon pools - two for work ROVs and one construction moon pool of 12 x 11.2 metres. The vessel has been prepared for a possible later installation of a module handling tower by reinforcing the foundations in the moon pool area. A later change order included an upgrade of the accommodation, from 200 to 239 persons. 

'Operation+' allows the vessel to continue uninterrupted operations after sustaining a substantial single failure, such as the loss of generators or thrusters. This gives the vessel unmatched extended redundancy, and a ship to fully rely on.
