The multifunctional vessel is an ice classed open deck carrier intended for transporting demanding project cargo, such as offshore wind farm structures as well as containers and bulk cargo, including energy wood, in the Baltic Sea region. Main LV distribution & Propulsion drives delivered by VEO.

The vessel is equipped with diesel electric machinery with an electric propulsion consisting of two converter controlled electric motors, each driving an azimuthing propulsion unit. The main diesel generators can be driven by marine diesel oils and liquid biofuels (LBF).

This is the first cargo ship of its size, which is able to use 100% bio-oil. The raw material for the biofuel comes from industry side streams, and therefore is not competing with food production.

In the foreship, two electrically driven thruster units are mounted to provide safe maneuvering in all conditions. The dynamic positioning system (DP) and the azimuthing thruster propulsion provide safe transportation of all types of cargos. The vessel is also capable of taking part in oil spill response activities.
