FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Bergen B33:45 is a liquid fuel, medium-speed engine featuring a modular design that was developed with years of research alongside operators, designers, and shipbuilders. The modular design makes the engine flexible for use in various applications, while providing an easy installation and low-weight construction. The B33:45 is preferred by vessels around the world due to its fuel-efficiency, low emission, low vibration and structural noise level and continued reliability with proven low lifecycle costs.
The ship, which is an ST-297 CLV designed from Skipsteknisk, is an updated version of the vessel “Nexans Aurora,” which today plays an important role in Nexans’ supply of advanced subsea high-voltage systems to support electrification. The 149.9-metre-long and 31-metre-wide vessel specializes in the transport and installation of subsea high-voltage cable systems and construction tasks.
Even in the most demanding weather conditions, the “Nexans Aurora” cable-laying vessel from 2021 works efficiently and has exceptional maneuverability and dynamic positioning. With this new update, Nexans’ latest vessel is set to perform for years to come. The advanced cable-laying vessel has a turntable on deck with a capacity of up to 10,000 tonnes of cable, a turntable below deck with 3500 tonnes of cable capacity, a fibre-optic capacity of 450 tonnes and is designed for a crew of 90 persons.
Kjell Harloff, Head of Sales – Marine at Bergen Engines commented, “We are very grateful that owner Nexans and Ulstein Verft once again has put their trust in Bergen Engines delivering the power solution for their second cable layer. The Bergen B33:45 engine has established itself as a reliable work horse within many different vessel applications, ranging from Fishery, Offshore, Passenger and Cargo to Naval & Governmental ships.”
