Support Vessel of the Year Award

Awarded to the owner, designer and builder of an offshore support vessel delivered in 2017 which is considered to have set an industry benchmark through innovative design and efficient operation.


Please select your winner:

1 Stepan Makarov multifunction icebreaking standby vessel – Sovcomflot/Arctech Helsinki Shipyard/Vyborg Shipyard

Stepan Makarov is the first multifunctional supply vessel in a series of three ordered by SCF Group. The ship’s high specification, innovative features and ability to operate in harsh climatic conditions made it a leader in its class when introduced in June 2017. The vessel has a range of innovative equipment purpose-designed to address the harsh operating environment in the Sea of Okhotsk, including a special Arctic-class Ampelmann Icemann gangway.

2 Maersk Master anchor handling tug/supply vessel – Maersk Supply Service/Salt Ship Design/Kleven Verft

Maersk claims its new anchor handlers, of which Maersk Master is the first, are unlike any others currently on the market and are a “premium asset that is second to none in terms of operational reliability, onboard safety, comfort and client offerings.”

3 Seacor Puma dynamically positioned crew transfer vessel – Seacor Marine/Astilleros Armon

Among the most recent additions to Seacor Marine’s fleet are two Incat Crowther-designed, next-generation ‘CrewZer’ type catamarans, Seacor Puma and Seacor Panther. The vessels were built by Astilleros Armon in Spain and are unique in the Gulf of Mexico in their ability to transfer personnel and equipment to offshore platforms at speeds of in excess of 40 knots.

4 Seven Arctic pipelay/construction vessel – Subsea 7/ Wärtsilä Ship Design/Hyundai Heavy Industries

Seven Arctic, Subsea 7’s new vessel, was designed to address the growing operational challenges for subsea construction in ultra-deep water and hostile environments. It is the first vessel of its kind in Subsea 7’s already highly specified fleet and combines an adaptable tiltable lay system that is suitable for use in different water depths with an immensely capable crane that has several modes of operation that can be selected according to the scope of work. Its versatility provides clients with more options than older vessels, such that the company believes it can undertake work that would have required two or three older less-capable units.
