Building a battery hybrid vessel for the Offshore Wind Industry

Ulstein Verft is constructing its third Service Operation Vessel for shipowner Bernhard Schulte. Following her delivery in 2020, the hybrid vessel will be working for GE Renewable Energy on the offshore wind farm Merkur Offshore.

All three vessels for Bernhard Schulte have been designed by Ulstein Design & Solutions AS, and they are all equipped with the Ulstein innovations X-BOW® and X-STERN™.
