The Basic Design phase follows 7 months of feasibility and conceptual studies carried out early 2013 by GVA.

Designed for operations worldwide, the self-propelled vessel will meet Heerema’s priority requirements for maximized transit speed. The vessel will be approximately 200 meters long by 97 meters wide and will have a lifting capacity of 2 x 10,000 metric tons. Health and Safety Regulations are strong drivers in enforcing the need to design a unit which meets the highest health and safety standards and with minimized environmental impact when fabricating and operating the NSCV. The NSCV hull configuration consists of a large deckbox mounted on an 8 column structure mounted on two pontoons.
