MV Fjord Connector, built in 2014, is presently under conversion in Szczecin. The vessel has been transformed from an offshore supply vessel to a vessel adapted for laying cables and submarine fiber optic installations.
The conversion of the ship is extensive, and includes installation of hybrid drive with batteries, upgrade of cargo hold room, installation of cable laying equipment and DP System. Batteries will be charged by shore power and use the hybrid drive during the voyage and cable laying mode.
- Conversion of MV Fjord Connector is an innovative project in many ways and show that using existing ships for conversion is a good opportunity for investing in sustainable solutions, says CEO Stian Andre Larsen.
Peak Marine Tech is doing full conversion project management including design and engineering.
