Acta Centaurus Arrives at Ulsteinvik for Final Construction Phase

The SX195 hull of Acta Marine’s second Walk-to-Work vessel from Ulstein, the Acta Centaurus, has now arrived at Ulstein Verft AS Norway.

Over the coming months, it will be further outfitted, commissioned and tested. The vessel's hull was constructed in Poland. Upon completion of the hull, the Acta Centaurus was launched in dry-dock and prepared for its journey to Ulsteinvik, Norway.
