ABB recently delivered four Azipod C propulsion systems for the Blue Ocean II Wind Turbine Installation Vessel built by Samsung Shipyard in Korea.
This is a repeat order from Samsung Shipyard, following a similar scope for the first Blue Ocean Wind Turbine Installation Vessel delivered in September, 2011.
