Ship history

Delivered 25 June 2009 to Olympic Shipping AS.

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.

The vessel was nominated ‘Ship of the year 2009’, and 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.

“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.

The vessel is equipped, built and certified according to IMO Class II for Dynamic Positioning.

Olympic Shipping was restructured as Olympic Subsea ASA in 2017.

2023, January: The vessel is constructed for work on the Côte d'Ivoire on a mission for Saipem. She will assist in the installation of the «Firenze FPSO» at 1,200m depth in the Baleine field. With her bollard pull, large winches and active heave-compensated crane which can operate down to 3,000m depths, the Olympic Zeus is a preferred candidate for such missions.
