Purus Charters Course For Sustainability With New CSOVs Joining Isle Of Man Registry


  • Purus, a world leader in maritime services for the gas transport and offshore wind industries, announced today the addition of two next-generation Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) to its fleet.
  • These eco-friendly vessels will operate under the Isle of Man Ship Registry (IOMSR) flag, showcasing a commitment to sustainability from both companies.

Designed for Efficiency and Clean Operations

The new CSOVs boast a state-of-the-art hybrid battery system, allowing for zero-emission operation during specific periods. Additionally, the vessels are “methanol-ready,” providing the flexibility to adopt a cleaner burning fuel source in the future. Optimized hull design further minimizes fuel consumption, demonstrating Purus’s dedication to reducing its environmental impact.

Accommodation and Functionality Optimized for Wind Farm Support

The CSOVs offer comfortable accommodations for 120 personnel with 85 cabins. Designed specifically for wind farm support operations, these vessels prioritize functionality with features like:

  • A stepless walk-to-work system enabling safe and efficient crew and cargo transfer between the vessel and wind turbines.
  • Ample storage capacity to accommodate essential supplies for offshore wind farm maintenance.
  • Superior operability for optimal performance in offshore environments.

Delivery Timeline and Collaborative Sustainability Efforts

The first CSOV is slated for delivery in the second quarter of 2025, with the second vessel following suit in the second quarter of 2026. VARD, a renowned shipbuilder, is constructing the first vessel in Romania and Norway, while the second will be built at their Vung Tau yard in Vietnam.

The IOMSR, a leader in promoting sustainable practices within the maritime sector, is actively supporting Purus’s decarbonization journey. This collaboration signifies both companies’ dedication to a zero-carbon future for the maritime industry.

Alignment with Industry Goals

Purus’s new CSOVs directly align with the offshore wind sector’s commitment to reducing emissions and fuel consumption. These vessels will play a vital role in minimizing the overall carbon footprint associated with building and operating offshore wind farms.

By prioritizing sustainability through innovative design and collaboration, Purus and the IOMSR are paving the way for a cleaner and greener future for the maritime industry.
