First new Ulstein building for Olympic undocked

The first of two new offshore speciality vessels for the Olympic shipping company has been launched at the Norwegian Ulstein shipyard.

The Construction Service Operation Vessel (CSOV) “Olympic Boreas” is based on the shipyard’s so-called Twin X-star design and is the first of initially two sister ships for Olympic.

The shipping company placed the order in summer 2022. Up to four newbuilds in the series are possible. Those involved are very satisfied with the construction progress. “The general outfitting work, which includes accommodation, electrical installations, piping and mechanical installations, has progressed well. The exterior painting was completed while the vessel was in the controlled environment of our dock hall. In addition, the commissioning phase of the project has begun,” said Project Manager Helge Torvik from Ulstein Verft.

Ulstein has hulls built in Poland

The Crist shipyard in Poland is building the hulls for the newbuildings. A diesel-electric drive with large battery storage systems is installed on board. The ships have a length of 89.6 m and a width of 19.2 m and can accommodate 126 people in 91 cabins.
