Offshore Vessel Named in Norway

Friday, August 12, 2011
Island Intervention will soon be ready for demanding operations in the Norwegian Sea.

The offshore construction vessel, Island Intervention, of the SX121 design from Ulstein was named. Shipowner Island Offshore has great expectations for the new vessel, which will carry out advanced operations in the Norwegian Sea this autumn.
Island Offshore is a leader within light well intervention and managing director of the company, Håvard Ulstein, says that its entire fleet is currently fully booked:
“Island Intervention will become an important addition to our fleet. This autumn, the vessel will be installing a series of production trees on the seabed in the Norwegian Sea for a Norwegian oil company. This is a complicated operation, but we are confident, that with the right crew, this vessel is the best equipment for the job. Our experience with its sister vessels, Island Constructor, also delivered by ULSTEIN, is very good and we therefore have great expectations for the new vessel,” ends Håvard Ulstein.
The 120 x 25-m vessel can accommodate 100 persons. It is fitted with a tower for module handling, moonpool, ROV hangar, offshore crane, helipad, and a iesel-electric propulsion system. The vessel is also equipped with ULSTEIN COM and ULSTEIN IAS.
