On 31 January, the Zamakona Yards Group successfully launched the "Ocean Marilin" in its installations in Pasajes, in Northern Spain.

The vessel is the second which Zamakona Yards has launched of the three vessels contracted with the Norwegian

Being especially adapted to the severe climatic conditions of the North Sea, it will commence operations for the oil company TOTAL in the second semester of 2014.

The vessel, built in Pasajes, is a field support vessel (FSV) of Havyard HY820 design. With a price of nearly €25m, the vessel incorporates the latest technologies including: dynamic positioning, fire control systems, machinery, towing pins on deck, and stern roller.
