Ship history

Delivered 9 November 2009 to Olympic Shipping AS.

The hybrid solution in the sister vessels Olympic Zeus’ and ‘Olympic Hera’ was nominated for the award "Green Ship/Service of the Year 2011" by Green Ship Technology Conference.

The hybrid system (diesel-electric/diesel-mechanical) was developed by Olympic Shipping and Ulstein and is adapted to a vessel with multiple roles. Compared with other AHTS vessels with diesel-mechanical propulsion, the Olympic vessels have experienced a massive fuel reduction.

“A good wide working deck makes it possible to work with several anchors and a lot of other equipment at the same time. It is possible to use the machinery very efficiently, with low to medium power of the engines when doing parts of the operations, this leads to reduced fuel consumption,” the crew reports.

2016: As part of an Olympic Ship restructuring, the Nordea bank took ownership of Olympic Hera. The vessel is now operated by DOF, which has the option to acquire the vessel. New name: Skandi Hera.

2020: Through The Norwegian Coastal Administration, the 'Skandi Hera' is one of the vessels involved in positioning the 'Havfarm 1', a new type of floating fish farm that can withstand rough conditions. (Photo: Karl Helge Haagensen).
