Yard number 283 Sarah has been anchored at Ulstein Verft since her naming July 4 due to financial discussions between shipowner Marine Subsea and their banks. The parties have come to a solution, and Marine Subsea reports to take delivery of the newbuilding in December.
The Ulstein SX121 offshore construction vessel features the characteristic Ulstein X-BOW, enabling her to operate under all weather conditions while remaining steady and comfortable for the crew. Equipped for 100 persons, the 120-meter-long and 25-meter-wide vessel is an impressive sight. She has a tower, moonpool, ROV hangar, crane and helideck as well as numerous sophisticated technical subtleties.
This is oil service company Marine Subsea's first vessel from the Ulstein Group. Marine Subsea provides oil and gas services mainly in West Africa, with three vessels in service and five under construction. Sarah has a 10-year service agreement with the Angolan state oil company Sonangol.
