Norwegian offshore supply vessel provider Golden Energy Offshore (GEO) named two platform supply vessels (PSVs).

The company's CEO Per Ivar Fagervoll said that the sister vessels Energy Empress and Energy Duchess were named on 29 June 2019. The naming ceremony was held on board the Energy Empress beneath the Seven Sisters waterfall in the Geiranger fjord.

The vessels have been built at the Nantong Rainbow Offshore & Engineering Equipments Co., Ltd (ROC) yard, China.

The platform supply vessels have been designed by Ulstein Design & Solutions AS and are based on Ulstein’s PX121 design. According to Ulstein, a total of thirty PX121 vessels have been built so far.

Fagervoll said, "In addition to design, Ulstein also delivers a significant package including equipment, supervision, commissioning and testing, which has been instrumental and a condition for us to enter into this series of vessels. There is also other Norwegian equipment onboard including the accommodation interior package, delivered in accordance with Norwegian standards.”

The Energy Empress is headed for her first assignment on July 1, said Fagervoll.
