A motion compensated Ampelmann gangway system, the world’s first heave compensated Barge Master T40 crane, DP2 system, Voith Schneider Propellers and bow thrusters, chemical supply and cold start-up unit, 500m2 free deck space, a fast rescue craft, daughter craft and accommodation facilities for 60 people on board. One by one essential features which are pretty common for an offshore vessel. But by combining these specs in one single design– like a kind of Swiss Army knife – you will get a unique vessel the world has not seen before. Enabling offshore activities to be executed more safely and efficiently.
