On the 22nd of October in Vietnam, OSM and shipowner Ocean Infinity celebrated the steel cutting ceremony for the 3rd hull numbered 936, of which its construction is being supervised by OSM. The steel cutting ceremony is traditionally the first event in the shipyard production process. A series of eight vessels are being built at VARD’s shipyard, Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam, with the first vessel expected to be delivered from mid-2022. The vessel’s design is developed with a customer committed to, and with high ambitions, delivering low environmental impact marine services. In close cooperation with regulatory bodies, the vessels are designed for an ultra-low carbon footprint and they are among the first vessels to be prepared for green ammonia as a fuel with fuel cell and battery technology. Furthermore, the vessels will provide safe launch and recovery platforms for ROVs and other robotic systems through two large moonpools arranged with an optimized and well-proven damping system. Two days earlier, another steel cutting ceremony took place in Dalian DSIC shipyard, China, on the 20th of October. The vessel to be built is a Dynamic Positioning Shuttle Tanker with hull No.ST155k-1, and its delivery is expected in March 2023. OSM wants to thank its partners for their trust and commits itself to continue to provide great service to current and future clients in the New Building Supervision sector.

A significant rescue operation by Navig8 Aragonite in the USA
September 29 2021
On the 16th of September 2021, our Oil/Chemical Tanker Navig8 Aragonite was en-route from Brunswick, Georgia to New Orleans via the Straits of Florida. What started as a normal working day for our crew would rapidly develop into a day they would never forget. A small team were carrying out routine deck maintenance when suddenly an unusual sight caught the attention of one of the team members. A small boat appeared to be in distress, so the sighting was immediately alerted to the attention of the bridge. Captain Sergii Vyshnevskyi, knowing this was a life-or-death situation took the only decision he was prepared to make. He informed his team that the Navig8 Aragonite would be saving lives that day and he then proceeded to immediately initiate a rescue operation. At 15:16 local time, the ship started to manoeuvre to pick up the distressed people who were clinging to a small, half-deflated rubber boat which was ready to sink. Due to the severity of the situation, Captain Vyshnevskyi decided not to launch the rescue boat and turned the ship around to allow the stream to bring the rubber boat closer to the ship. This manoeuvre worked and the ship was close enough to the rubber boat so the people could use the pilot ladder and safely embark. The Master and crew of the Navig8 Aragonite saved the lives of five men and one woman with no time to spare, as their rubber boat sank shortly after they came on board. They had spent approximately one week stranded at sea and were exhausted. The crew supplied the rescued people with dry and warm clothes, nourishing meals and let them rest to regain their strength. At 16:00 local time, the ship resumed her passage. In four hours’ time, the rescued people were handed over to the US Coast Guard. Chief Officer Sergei Ivanov was leading the rescue operation on deck, whilst Second Officer Gatis Bruders maintained communication with the USCG by VHF radio. Due to the excellent communication between the office, the vessel, the US Coast Guard and other authorities, the rescue operation went smoothly and in line with procedures. This is the first trip in rank for Captain Sergii Vyshnevskyi and he and his crew did not hesitate to take on this challenge. At OSM, It is all about people and we could not be any prouder of the exemplary actions taken …
Welcome MT Mastera to OSM Norway!
September 22 2021
We are very pleased to report that OSM Ship Management AS took over full management of the tanker «MT Mastera», the 17th of September, while the vessel was lying safely at the inner anchorage of Porvoo, Finland. The vessel was handed over from OSM Finland to OSM Norway (Arendal) with the change of flag and crew. MT Mastera is an Aframax crude oil tanker. She and her sister ship, Tempera, were the first ships to utilize the double acting tanker (DAT) concept in which the vessel is designed to travel ahead in open water and astern in severe ice conditions. The icebreaking tanker transports crude oil year-round from the Russian oil terminal in Primorsk to Neste Oil refineries in Porvoo and Naantali in Finland. We appreciate the good team effort given by OSM Finland to make a smooth transfer. Congratulations to the Master and his crew, together with Stian Hagevik Heggeland and Grzegorz Roman Nakielski on the successful takeover. We welcome MT Mastera and we wish her many safe travels!
