Offshore Support Vessels

Known for good reason as “the trucks of the sea,” our expansive design portfolio of offshore support vessels (OSVs) plays an essential role in the transport of cargo to and from offshore oil fields worldwide.

Vard Marine’s rugged OSVs are designed for maximum cargo capacity as well as superior transit operation and station-keeping capabilities. Yet we never lose sight of crew safety and comfort.

We’re pioneers and partners

We know the offshore oil and gas industry is changing – with a critical focus on performance and efficiency. We developed leading-edge technologies, ensuring our designs meet the need of our clients and the evolving demands of the restructured oil and gas industry.

But some things don’t change – like Vard Marine’s collaborative, customized approach to our work. We partner with clients on designs suited to the unique demands of each mission. Working closely with shipyards, equipment suppliers, owners, charters and Classification Societies, we aim to deliver a practical design solution that’s fit for purpose.

The client advantage

A key advantage of our OSV is the opportunity to incorporate industry-leading liquid natural gas (LNG)/diesel hybrid propulsion systems. When combined with Vard Electro – our sister company specializing in maritime electrical systems – our pioneering technologies and design pair the fuel efficiency of LNG with the flexibility to switch to diesel when needed, resulting in greatly reduced emissions.

The outcome of Vard Marine’s tailored, cutting-edge approach is an efficient design that offers remarkable performance, lower construction expense and reduced operating costs over a vessel’s lifetime.

We don’t stop there

Moreover, once your design is complete, Vard Marine can provide support in following phases to ensure continuity. This includes onsite construction guidance right through performance validation at sea trials. With Vard Electro we can fully support electrical integration; and we are always available to assist our clients through the regulatory process.
