Dutch outfit OOS Energy is to build two new jack-up vessels for a range of services, including offshore wind project installation.

The self-propelled, dynamically-positioned jack-ups will be capable of working in water depths of up to 80 metres, the company said. 

The identical vessels with both feature two 1200-tonne cranes and a large number of accommodation berths. 

The jack-ups will also be capable of carrying out plug and abandonment, well intervention and drilling operations enabling them to also work in the oil and gas sector. 

“Discussions are well underway with potential clients recognising the efficiency of this unit,” said OOS chief executive Léon Overdulve. 

The developer is in talks with shipyards over the construction of both vessels, which aim to join the company's existing fleet of four semi submersible crane vessels in late 2020 and early 2021. 

The first ship to be delivered will be named Luctor et Emergo, the company added.
