DP1 equipped EuroCarrier 2611
UK-based marine services company Stewart Marine has contracted Neptune Marine in The Netherlands to build a new EuroCarrier 2611, which is to be named ‘Viking Energy’.
To meet Stewart Marine’s operational requirements, Neptune will customise the 26-metre long workboat with a DP1 system.
Stewart Marine is based in Fife, Scotland. It offers marine services to the offshore renewables industry around the world. Talking after the contract signing, Owner Graham Stewart, said: “After several years working with Neptune’s EuroCarriers, I am very positive about the capabilities of the design – especially the manoeuvrability and handling. Moreover, our crews are very positive about set-up of the vessel.”
“As well as my previous experience with EuroCarriers, we chose Neptune because of their flexibility,” Stewart continued. “For our project needs, we wanted to add DP1 and modify the deck lay-out and bridge system to just the way we believe it works best. Neptune has been very supportive in this process.”
The Viking Energy fits in with Graham Stewart’s vision to deliver a broad range of marine services for the offshore renewables industry, including cable lay operations, subsea cable protection and offshore wind farm support.
“Wind and tidal renewable energy is the future and it is our goal at Stewart Marine to be part of many exciting new projects and concepts throughout the industry. Now we have an ideal vessel to offer our clients – the future is exciting and we are all looking forward to the arrival of the Viking Energy,” he said.
Neptune will build the new EuroCarrier 2611 at its yard in Aalst, the Netherlands. Delivery is scheduled for April 2019. “On-time delivery can only be achieved by effective communication and flexibility – what Neptune Marine is known for,” a Neptune spokesman said.
