The Platform Supply Vessel Stril Barents was delivered from VARD to Simon Møkster Shipping in 2015.
In August 2019, the vessel was equipped with Vard Electro's SeaQ Energy Storage System (ESS) and SeaQ Shore Connection. Stril Barents is a modern duel fuel vessel, and the installation of the SeaQ ESS and SeaQ Shore Connection will ensure that the environmental impact is reduced. Fuel consumption and emissions will be significantly reduced for all operating modes. Increased security is achieved in terms of spinning reserve, response time as well as enhanced redundancy.
Vard Electro was responsible for the entire project, which includes engineering, steel prefabrication, installation, integration, testing and commissioning. Planning and installation was done in close cooperation with Simon Møkster Shipping. The result was a successful installation without off-hire days for the vessel. The vessel will be awarded class notation "Battery Power" by DNV-GL.
