Finally, the first of our twin vessels have been launched. MHO Gurli went on her maiden voyage on January the 28th and we are proud to introduce her as one of the largest CTVs in the world.
Great emphasis has been placed on her sustainability and comfort for the passengers she will be transporting around the European waters.
Contract for offshore support vessels signed
