DEME Group’s DP3 offshore installation vessel Orion is on the way to Europe for the final construction phase before heading to its first offshore wind project. Orion will arrive in Rostock, Germany, in a few weeks, where it will be equipped with a Liebherr crane that has a lifting capacity of 5,000t. The 216.5m vessel will be able to accommodate a crew of up to 131 people and will be powered by a dual-fuel engine capable of burning liquefied natural gas.

In mid-July, Orion left the COSCO Qidong shipyard in China to start the first series of sea trials, where its performance was measured and the dual-fuel engines tested to their maximum power.
