BS Offshore SOV Readies for Sea Trials
A service operations vessel (SOV), owned and operated by Bernhard Schulte Offshore, is undergoing final tests at Ulstein Verft’s shipyard in Norway in preparation for sea trials.
"The Yard number 315 newbuild at Ulstein Verft, the Windea TBN for Bernhard Schulte, has been floated out from the outer dock and has now been positioned quayside. The vessel is now getting prepared for her first sea trial in early March," said a press release from the Norwegean shipbuilding company.
Prior to the sea trial various tests will be carried out, including start-up of the propulsion system, testing of the tower and crane.
