The SOV W2W vessel Acta Auriga, currently under construction at Ulstein Verft, Norway for owner Acta Marine, has successfully completed sea trials. The walk-to-work vessel is custom-designed for the offshore energy industry. 

Together with a 3D crane, SMST gangway and elevator tower, and the X-BOW and X-STERN design solutions, the vessel will break new grounds in workability, in-field agility, offshore logistics and comfort on board for 120 persons combined with a low fuel consumption, the builder said.

The vessel, of Ulstein’s SX195 design, has returned to the construction yard for completion before delivery to Acta Marine.

The vessel has been awarded a two-year charter for Operations and maintenance work at the German offshore wind farm BARD Offshore 1.
