Ship history

Delivered 9 November 2009 to Olympic Shipping AS. 

The hybrid solution in the sister vessels ‘Olympic Zeus’ and ‘Olympic Hera’ was nominated for the award "Green Ship/Service of the Year 2011" by Green Ship Technology Conference. 

The hybrid system (diesel electric/diesel mechanical) was developed by Olympic Shipping and Ulstein and is adapted to a vessel with multiple roles. Compared with other AHTS vessels with diesel mechanical propulsion, the Olympic vessels have experienced a massive fuel reduction.

“A good wide working deck makes it possible to work with several anchors and a lot of other equipment at the same time. It is possible to use the machinery very efficient, with low to medium power of the engines when doing parts of the operations, this leads to reduced fuel consumption,” the crew reports.

2016: As part of an Olympic Ship restructuring, the Nordea bank took ownership of Olympic Hera. The vessel is now operated by DOF, who has an option to acquire the vessel. New name: Skandi Hera.

2017: Still active - IMO 9424730
