AKOFS Seafarer – Major milestone accomplished – first sea trial underway


On Friday 6 December AKOFS Offshore was proud to see the AKOFS Seafarer embark on the first sea trial after completion of a major milestone of the upgrade and preparation project. Completed and now being tested is the DP upgrade, the “Green Profile” installation of an exhaust catalyst system, an electrification battery energy storage system as well as a groundbreaking safe and efficient system for tool and BHA handling and running. With these upgrades the vessel will increase its operability and improve its environmental footprint which has been an important goal for both AKOFS and our client, Equinor.

Just before the Seatrial, on 27 November,  the AKOFS Seafarer changed from Cyprus to Norwegian flag when it was registered in the Norwegian Ordinary Ship Register (NOR).
