ULSTEIN has entered into a contract for the delivery of design and power package for two platform supply vessels of the PX121 design for the Dutch shipowner Vroon. The ships will be constructed at China’s COSCO (Guangdong) Shipyard Co., Ltd.

“The shipowner and yard are new customers to ULSTEIN. We are very grateful for the new order and look forward to the cooperation”, comments managing director Sigurd Viseth in Ulstein Design & Solutions.

The vessels are planned for delivery in Q1 2015. The contract also includes an option of two more vessels.

The PX121 design from ULSTEIN has been very well received worldwide. The vessels for Vroon are the ninth and tenth of this design.

On Wednesday this week, Ulstein Verft delivered Blue Power, ship number 3 out of 6 to Blue Ship Invest of this design, and shipowner Britoil has previously ordered two such vessels.
