Rem Mist is a large platform supply vessel (PSV) built by the Norwegian shipbuilder Ulstein Verft for Remøy Shipping, a ship management company of the Remøy Group. She was delivered in May 2011 and immediately chartered to Statoil for operations in the North Sea.
Ulstein was contracted in May 2008 for the construction of two PSVs. The first vessel, Rem Hrist, was delivered in March 2011.
Construction on the second vessel was commenced in 2009, with the keel being laid in September 2009. She was launched in February 2011. The vessel’s hull was constructed in Kerch, Ukraine, by Zaliv shipyard.
Ulstein Verft As
Rem Mist has been built to cope with the tough requirements of the offshore industry. The main activities performed by the vessel include transportation of cargoes, carriage of dry bulk (as well as liquid bulk in tanks) and moving pipes and other general cargo on the open deck.
The vessel’s design is based on PX105 design series, which was developed by Ulstein Design & Solutions to meet future demands of the offshore industry. The PX105 vessels, due to their large and dependable platforms, can ship voluminous and general cargoes to offshore sites.
The 4,258t PSV is incorporated with Ulstein’s unique and eco-friendly hull design, which is popularly known as X-BOW. Based on an inverted bow concept, this unique hull line causes less hydrodynamic drag and therefore allows the vessel to operate on less fuel compared to ships with a conventional hull line.
The environmentally-friendly vessel carries DNV’s (Det Norske Veritas) Clean Design class notation and is provided with an oil recovery system which complies with NOFO 2005 standards. She is also certified (by Norwegian Maritime Directorate) to be used as a standby / rescue vessel for up to 250 people
