It’s the company’s second wellboat delivery in 2022.

The wellboat company Intership has ordered a new hybrid vessel. The wellboat will have a total capacity of 2.500 m3 and will be delivered during the fourth quarter of 2022.

The new wellboat will be built by the Spanish shipyard Zamakona Yards Bilbao, based on a design from Salt Ship Design.

The vessel will be equipped with energy recovery solutions and a large battery package to permit hybrid operation and is prepared for a considerably sized reverse osmosis system. To avoid major depth restrictions newbuild will have a low operational draught compared to its size. This new vessel will become Intership’s second wellboat delivery in 2022.

“Intership holds a sustainable mindset and the contracting of a wellboat with one of the market’s largest battery packages is a big step towards a greener profile for both us and the industry as a whole. Our focus has been to design a flexible and versatile wellboat that is competitive both today and in the future. Hence, it is essential that the vessel has the lowest possible-climate footprint and impact on the environment,” said Intership CEO Ole Peter Brandal.

“This is achieved not only through the installed battery-hybrid solution but also by facilitating the installation of a reverse osmosis system for freshwater production, which in many places is a scarce and necessary resource,” added Brandal.
