Norwegians to build ‘first of its kind’ energy subsea construction vessel

Norwegian shipping company Rem Offshore has placed an order with compatriot Myklebust Verft for the construction of an energy subsea construction vessel (ESCV) said to be the first of its kind to perform heavy construction work in both offshore wind and subsea with net zero emissions.

According to Rem, the ESCV will use a number of solutions where energy consumption is almost halved compared to comparable tonnage in today’s market, as well as meeting future requirements for zero emissions from end to end.

“This is a big milestone for Rem Offshore. We are ordering our first net zero emission vessel and taking a big step into the future. We are looking forward to being able to offer the vessel to the market, and believe that our customers will appreciate the opportunity for more efficient and sustainable operations,” said Lars Conradi Andersen, CEO of Rem Offshore

The vessel will be equipped with dual-fuel methanol engines in combination with battery packs. All offshore lifting equipment, including the 250 T crane, is electric and regenerates power to the batteries.

The working deck is over 1,400 m2, and the vessel will be ready for the installation of an offshore gangway for use in offshore wind, the company said.

Skipsteknisk designed the flexible platform in close cooperation with Rem and Myklebust, with delivery expected in 2026.

The contract also contains an option to build one more vessel.

“We are very happy that Rem Offshore has chosen Myklebust Verft to build this environmentally friendly vessel. This assignment is a recognition of all our employees and the quality that Myklebust stands for. The project will also have major positive ripple effects in our area,” said Leiv Sindre Muren, CEO of Myklebust Verft.
