Norway-based shipowner Awind has given contracts to Kongsberg Maritime for designing and equipping two construction service operation vessels (CSOV/SOV).
The total value of the contracts stands at around Nkr250m ($30m).
The vessels, featuring Kongsberg’s UT 5519 DE design, will be built by China Merchant Heavy Industries.
The vessels are due to be delivered in 2023 and will be deployed for renewable offshore wind projects. Their design will aim to improve sustainability and minimise emissions.
