NB 68 Cable Lay Support Vessel

NB68, our first contract with the Norwegian Offshore company Agalas, is a cable lay support vessel used for cable/fiber cable laying, trenching, inspection and repair purposes in ocean and wind power plants. This ship, which uses methanol as fuel in the main propulsion system, is the first vessel of our shipyard with a methanol fuel concept. This design, which aims to minimize carbon emissions, also has a diesel-electric propulsion system, supported by an electric generator and energy storage batteries. It has a cabin capacity of 100 people including the operation crew. This innovative, green and effective design was prepared by Norwegian ship design company NSK.

For maximize ship capability in harsh sea conditions, the vessel; equipped with an Active Heave Compensation (AHC) crane, this vessel can operate with 0 degrees of instability, with the support of the dynamic positioning system (DP-2 with HiPAP), in harsh sea conditions, for the necessary cargo pickup and delivery to the offshore platform it docks with, or for other construction work.
