OSM has been awarded the New Build Site Supervision project of Ocean Infinity’s Eight new build vessels project. The Vessels will contain a unique multi-purpose platform with custom design and technology features allowing onshore remote control, light crew or un-crewed operations, and the introduction of alternative fuels such as green ammonia. With a length of 78 meters, the vessels will be the first of their kind and represent a giant leap forward for the Maritime sector, providing sustainable services to all corners of the industry from offshore energy, to logistics and transport.
The series of eight vessels will expand Ocean Infinity’s newly launched Armada fleet, comprising the latest in technology and marine robotics including autonomous underwater vehicles and remotely operated surface vessels. The new vessels are specially developed to serve as multi-role vessels and will support Ocean Infinity’s operations worldwide from its control centers.
“We are honored to be chosen as Ocean Infinity’s New Build Site Supervision partner in such a prestigious and technically innovative and Challenging project” – Douglas Dalli, Managing Director in OSM Project and New Building Supervision.
“We are pleased to be working with OSM, an industry-leader in ship build management. Sharing our passion for innovation and operational excellence, they are ideally placed to oversee the build of these highly innovative, first-in-class vessels” – Andy Holt, Fleet Director, Ocean Infinity.
The vessel’s design is developed with a customer committed to, and with high ambitions, for delivering low environmental impact marine services. In close cooperation with regulatory bodies, the vessels are designed for an ultra-low carbon footprint and they are among the first vessels to be prepared for green ammonia as a fuel with fuel cell and battery technology. Furthermore, the vessels will provide safe launch and recovery platforms for ROVs and other robotic systems through two large moonpools arranged with an optimized and well-proven damping system.
The series of eight vessels will be built at VARD’s shipyard, Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam, with the first vessel expected to be delivered from mid-2022.
