Construction Vessels

Picture a construction site. Think of the equipment needed to build and maintain its complex structures. Now put the site in the middle of the ocean. Now plunge it deep underwater. Now freeze the water.

An impossible scenario? Vard Marine’s expertise designing vessels for subsea operations in hostile environments makes the impossible achievable every day.

With a focus on the offshore oil and gas industry, the vessels we design provide ROV and diving support, well stimulation and intervention, and warehousing or crew accommodations.

For site prep, drilling or exploration in arctic regions we add in our deep experience designing for ice-infested waters.

The Vard Marine advantage

Our designs for offshore construction vessels (OCVs) are tailored to the unique needs and circumstances of each mission. For the complex demands of offshore oilfield construction, we strive to balance the demands of space, weight, workflow and cargo.

The result is a vessel design with features and capabilities that harmonize to produce a flexible, stable construction platform. And our emphasis on optimal workflow means better safety and higher crew effectiveness.

Our collaborative approach

We take a tailored, consultative approach to each design challenge, partnering with our clients and other stakeholders to reach the ideal solution.

An essential part of our design process for OCVs is early consultation with key suppliers. This ensures that all the equipment going into the design works well as a whole.
