On the 7th of May in Vietnam, OSM and shipowner Ocean Infinity celebrated the launching of the 1st hull, numbered 934, which construction is being supervised by the OSM Projects and New Building Supervision department. The series of eight 78m vessels are being built at VARD’s shipyard, Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam.

Ocean Infinity announced in February 2020 that it was to launch the world’s first fleet of carbon-neutral uncrewed robotic vessels, marking a major technological advance in the maritime industry.

Designed for today’s tasks but with tomorrow’s in mind, these exceptionally fuel-efficient, onshore-controlled vessels will initially only utilise a skeleton crew onboard. In due course, they will be capable of working with no personnel offshore whilst also consuming solely renewable fuel such as ammonia.

OSM wants to thank its partners for their trust and commits itself to continue to provide great service to current and future clients in the Projects & New Building Supervision sector.
