C-Job Naval Architects is proud to be involved with co-creating the concept ship design together with DEME’s subsidiary GeoSea. We congratulate both DEME as COSCO with this ground-breaking vessel that will be able to operate in the most challenging conditions with ever larger capacity turbines and bigger wind farm projects.

 

 

‘Orion’ will feature an unrivalled combination of exceptionally high transport and load capacity, impressive lifting heights and green technology. The vessel will be built at the COSCO Shipyard in China and is set to be delivered in 2019.

 

‘Orion’ will be deployed by DEME’s subsidiary GeoSea for the construction of the largest offshore wind farms, to service the oil and gas industry and for decommissioning of offshore installations.

 

Next generation 

With a total installed capacity of 44,180 kW ‘Orion’ will be equipped with a high-tech crane with lifting capacity of 3,000 tonnes at more than 50 metres. The loads can be lifted to an unrivalled height of more than 170 m. Deck space has been maximised to provide exceptionally high transport and load capacity. The vessel can take the heaviest monopiles, jackets, wind turbine components and structures in a single shipment.

 

With this unmatched combination of high load and lifting capacity, ‘Orion’ can transport and install the next generation of giant multi-megawatt wind turbines.

 

Sustainable ship design

Environmental considerations have been an important element of the vessel design. ‘Orion’ has dual fuel engines and can run on natural gas (LNG). It will have a Green Passport and Clean Design notation. It will also have other environmental innovations on board, such as a waste heat recovery system that converts heat from the exhaust gasses and cooling water to electrical energy. The 216.5 metres long Orion, featuring DP3 capability, can accommodate a crew of up to 131 people.
