DeepOcean has activated an option to request the installation of a battery hybrid system on board the
Stril Server multi-purpose support vessel (MPSV).

DeepOcean is chartering the Stril Server from Stavanger-based shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping, who will upgrade the vessel to include battery power notation in Q1 2024. Simon Møkster Shipping will install a 620kWh battery system from SEAM AS. Stril Server’s control and DP systems will also be upgraded, and system for onshore charging will be installed.

The vessel is currently on a two-year time charter agreement with DeepOcean. She supports the company’s offering within subsea inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR), light construction and recycling services to operators in the offshore renewables and oil and gas industries.

The vessel  is equipped with 2x Kystdesign ROVs together with DeepOcean’s dedicated infrastructure, allowing for remote operations from the company’s Remote Operations Centre in Haugesund, Norway.

“We have set a target to reduce our CO2emissions by 45 percent by 2030. Reducing fuel consumption and emissions from vessels that we charter is an important part of reaching this goal. It is also a deciding factor when choosing which shipowners we wish to hire vessels from. We are very pleased that Simon Møkster Shipping has an equally ambitious strategy for reduction of carbon emissions,”
said Øyvind Mikaelsen, CEO of DeepOcean.
