‘NG Endurance’ successfully completed sea trial
The sea trial of the NG Endurance has been successfully carried out over the weekend. The polar vessel is soon to return to the shipyard, Ulstein Verft, for the final construction phase before setting off to explore the Arctic.
Offshore wind vessel positioned quayside
The Yard number 315 newbuild at Ulstein Verft, the Windea TBN for Bernhard Schulte, has been floated out from the outer dock and has now been positioned quayside. The vessel is now getting prepared for her first sea trial in early March.
Why spend more money when 3,000t provide higher return on investment?
Offshore wind is growing, but with margins under pressure it is also challenging. Current demand reveals a shortage of heavy lift vessels. The key questions are: how should the new generation crane ships look like? What are the trends? And where is the ‘sweet spot’ to invest in?
GET GOING FOR GREEN SOLUTIONS:
Hydrogen as a zero-emission solution
Hydrogen is considered as the ultimate zero-emission solution. Our first hydrogen powered ship design is now market-ready, offering zero-emission marine operations.Hydrogen: Take it in use today
The X-BOW® and X-STERN™ are two major innovations from Ulstein, improving seakeeping, comfort and safety, and reducing fuel consumption.X-BOW and X-STERN
Enabling cruise ships to run emission-free for 12 hours
In order to comply with regulations, as well as minimise environmental impact, cruise operators will need new technical solutions. The ULSTEIN ZED power system allows cruise operators to visit vulnerable and protected areas without greenhouse gas emissions and local pollution.
Alfa Lift – the smart design for offshore wind installations
The Norway-based shipowner OHT recently celebrated the keel laying of their Alfa Lift heavy installation vessel. Custom-designed by Ulstein, the foundation installation vessel will serve the early development stage of new offshore wind farms. Ulstein has ship solutions for all phases in the life of offshore wind farms.
Batteries for yard number 315
In cooperation with shipowner Bernhard Schulte, Ulstein Design & Solutions has designed a diesel-electric propulsion system assisted by batteries to reduce operating hours on the main engines, save fuel and reduce environmental footprint. The hybrid system will be introduced on yard number 315 at Ulstein Verft.
Introduces the X-BOW® in RoPax designs
The X-BOW RoPax portfolio is based on a compact concept to increase the competitiveness of such vessels through higher revenue making at lower financial and operational costs.See portfolio
