DEME | ‘Orion’

C-Job Naval Architects co-created the concept design of the offshore installation vessel ‘Orion’ with her owner DEME. The ship was constructed at COSCO shipyard in China. C-Job provided COSCO with the basic design package of the vessel.  ‘Orion’ is able to perform offshore wind turbine and foundation installation and decommissioning activities.

The vessel was delivered to DEME in 2022 and currently sails around the world to install next generation mega foundations and turbines.
