The two vessels are of the Ulstein SX195 and SX197 design, carrying 100 POB and 60 POB, respectively. They are the first purpose-made SOVs for China offshore wind farms, and are scheduled to enter into service in 2024.  

The two vessels have the Ulstein iconic design features, the Ulstein X-BOW and X-STERN, providing a highly efficient, robust, and state-of-the-art O&M service platform to the end customers.

With batteries installed, the vessels will have a greener footprint when servicing the renewable energy sector.

The launch ceremony was attended by China offshore wind farm developers like the State Power Investment Corporation, Three Gorges Corporation, and China Nuclear Power. The farm owners recognize the effectiveness and efficiency these purpose-made SOVs can provide and look forward to welcoming them for wind farm operations.
