X-STERN Nominated for Prestigious Award (offshorewind.biz)
X-STERN™ has been nominated as one of the top four candidates for the Next Generation Ship Award.

The Next Generation Ship Award recognizes achievements in innovative ship designs. The winner will be announced at the Nor-Shipping Opening Conference in June.

The X-STERN, having much of the same characteristics as the X-BOW, can stay in position in harsh weather with the stern towards waves, wind and current. Its gentle displacement reduces acceleration, pitch and heave. There will be no sea on deck due to the stern shape and enclosed nature of the aft deck, and increased safety for crew, cargo and equipment, and the aft working sector increases. After having been introduced in Q3 2014, the first two design and shipbuilding contracts for X-STERN vessels were signed for the sustainable wind energy market, for delivery to Bernhard Schulte. The vessels will be servicing offshore wind installations for Siemens.
