3rd Steel Cutting Ceremony for OSM and Ocean Infinity
OSM proudly participated in the third Ocean Infinity steel cutting ceremony last week, something that proves in action the trust of our ship owning partners in OSM and its experienced people who constitute the New Building Supervision Department.
On the 22nd of October in Vietnam, OSM and shipowner Ocean Infinity celebrated the steel cutting ceremony for the 3rd hull numbered 936, of which its construction is being supervised by OSM. The steel cutting ceremony is traditionally the first event in the shipyard production process. A series of eight vessels are being built at VARD’s shipyard, Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam, with the first vessel expected to be delivered from mid-2022.
The vessel’s design is developed with a customer committed to, and with high ambitions, 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.
Two days earlier, another steel cutting ceremony took place in Dalian DSIC shipyard, China, on the 20th of October. The vessel to be built is a Dynamic Positioning Shuttle Tanker with hull No.ST155k-1, and its delivery is expected in March 2023.
OSM wants to thank its partners for their trust and commits itself to continue to provide great service to current and future clients in the New Building Supervision sector.
