Exail, a leading provider of maritime autonomy solutions, has unveiled its new transoceanic Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV), the DriX O-16. Benefitting from an autonomy of 2,500 Nm and a unique naval architecture that enables the USV to withstand the most severe ocean conditions, the new DriX O-16 has been designed for long-duration operations (up to 30 days) and can deploy multiple payloads and subsea assets.

VARD is pleased to announce it has signed a contract with Navigare Capital Partners, in close corporation with Norwind Offshore, for the design and construction of one tailor-made Commissioning Service Operation Vessel (CSOV). The parties have also agreed on new options for two additional vessels.

FORCE Technology, a leader in simulation-based maritime technology, engineering and training, and Varjo, a global technology leader in industrial-grade virtual and mixed reality hardware and software, have signed a strategic frame agreement. The partnership positions FORCE Technology as Varjo's integrator partner, focusing on delivering advanced VR and XR training solutions to maritime customers worldwide.

Union Maritime Ltd, a leading tanker owner and operator, is making waves in maritime sustainability with its plan to build two new LR2 tankers with WindWings®. The two vessels, currently being built at the renowned Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS) yard in China, will each feature three WindWings, a cutting-edge wind propulsion technology developed by British design and engineering firm BAR Technologies.

Strategic Marine (S) Pte Ltd and Prosperous Wind Shipping Limited, an affiliate of Pacific Radiance Ltd., have successfully delivered a cutting-edge vessel to support Taiwan’s Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm. This StratCat 27 hybrid-ready vessel, a winner of the Work Boat World awards for Best Medium Windfarm Support Vessel in 2022 and following the same award in 2023 for its first parallel hybrid variant, showcases the collaboration’s commitment to advancing renewable energy through innovative maritime solutions.

TDI-Brooks' latest dynamic positioning (DP) vessel, the RV NAUTILUS, has reached the shores of the East Coast of the United States. The DP2 vessel RV NAUTILUS from TDI-Brooks, with a length of 75 meters and built in 2000, arrived at the US East Coast on March 3, 2024. After undergoing a 6-month retrofit in Las Palmas, the vessel will provide support for offshore wind projects and various other subsea needs. It is equipped with advanced technology, including a Geomil Manta-200 CPT that can be deployed through the mid-ship moonpool of NAUTILUS. This system can penetrate the soil up to 40-50 meters, depending on its composition, to determine the soil's exact makeup. This data is crucial for identifying the best location and design for offshore developments like wind farms. The offshore renewable energy sector is expanding rapidly, resulting in a high demand for TDI's services on both the US East and West Coasts.

Saab and Damen Shipyards have agreed to export the advanced Expeditionary C-71 submarines. CEO of Damen Shipyards Arnout Damen and CEO of Saab Micael Johansson made the decision this week to export together the submarine, which has been developed for the Royal Netherlands Navy to replace the current Walrus class. The agreement doubles the long-term prospect of employment and income for the Netherlands Naval Cluster with the replacement of the Walrus submarines by Saab-Damen.
