Offshore shipowner Polarcus has ordered six new ships of Ulstein design.  The Ulstein SX124-, Ulstein SX133- and Ulstein SX134-type vessels will be built at Drydocks World Dubai.  Polarcus is committed to the environment and innovative solutions, and has done business with the Ulstein Group before. 
The two new designs, Ulstein SX133 and Ulstein SX134, are the first vessels with the Ulstein X-BOW to receive DNV’s ICE-1A class notation, which means they can operate in Arctic waters.  The Ulstein SX124 and Ulstein SX134 vessels will be fitted with a 3D seismic system and 12 streamer winches, while the two Ulstein SX133 multi-purpose seismic vessels will be equipped with six streamer winches for 3D/2D/source operation.
