Ulstein-designed sister vessels 'Energy Empress' and 'Energy Duchess', for Golden Energy Offshore, have been named in the Geiranger fjord, Norway.

The naming ceremony was held on board the Energy Empress beneath the 'Seven Sisters' waterfall, a UNESCO world heritage site. Golden Energy Offshore CEO Per Ivar Fagervoll said that the Energy Empress was to head for her first assignment on 1 July.

The platform supply vessels were designed by Ulstein Design & Solutions, based on the proven PX121 design, and built at the Nantong Rainbow Offshore & Engineering Equipments yard in China. A total of 30 PX121 vessels have been built. These two vessels for Golden Energy Offshore boast an extra accommodation deck.

Fagervoll said: "In addition to design, Ulstein also delivers a significant package including equipment, supervision, commissioning and testing, which has been instrumental and a condition for us to enter into this series of vessels. There is also other Norwegian equipment on-board including the accommodation interior package, delivered in accordance with Norwegian standards.”
