In January this year, Ulstein secured an order from Germany-based Bernhard Schulte to build two service operation vessels (SOVs) for Windea.

The new vessels will be the first in the Ulstein SX175 design for the offshore wind industry and will feature the new X-STERN hull line design, as well as the proven X-BOW, developed by Ulstein Design and Solutions.
