‘Orion’ will be deployed for the construction of the largest offshore wind farms, alongside oil and gas industry roles, and for decommissioning. The vessel will feature exceptionally high transport and load capacity, impressive lifting heights and green technology. It has a total installed capacity of 44,180 kW and will be equipped with a high-tech Liebherr crane with a lifting capacity of 5,000 tonnes, enabling it to hoist heavy loads at an exceptional radius. The loads can be lifted to a height of more than 170 metres.

The deck space and deadweight has been maximised to provide an exceptionally high transport and load capacity. ‘Orion’ can take the heaviest monopiles, jackets, wind turbine components and structures in a single shipment, and can transport and install the next generation of multi-megawatt wind turbines.

‘Orion’ has dual fuel engines and can run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). It will have a Green Passport and Clean Design notation and will also have other innovations on board, such as a waste heat recovery system that converts heat from the exhaust gases and cooling water to electrical energy. The evaporation of LNG will cool the accommodation with a cold recovery system. She is expected to join the fleet at the end of 2019.
