Acta Marine has taken early delivery of the walk-to-work Acta Auriga support vessel, destined for use of the BARD Offshore 1 wind farm in the North Sea.
The vessel, from Ulstein Verft, will provide logistical support and maintenance activities of the 400Megawatt wind farm, in the German North Sea.
It was delivered three days ahead of schedule, with the outfitting completed within 19 weeks.
The Acta Auriga has a specialised gangway which will allow safe transfer of people and cargo with wave heights of up to 3 metres.
It also features “smart hotel accommodation” for up to 120 people, including a library, games room, sauna and a gym.
The vessel has 1000 square metres of cargo space.
Rob Boer, managing director in Acta Marine, said: “This vessel will be the next level in the market and very well suited to operate in the offshore, and specifically the renewable market. We are very content with the project follow-up and the early delivery by Ulstein.
“We will now get ready to bring her out to the offshore wind farm to commence work.”
