Danish contractor and shipowner NKT has confirmed that its latest newbuilding cable-laying vessel will able to run on methanol and biofuel.

The ship, designed by Salt Ship Design, is being built at Vard in Norway and is due to be delivered in 2027.

NKT announced plans for the newbuilding order in May 2023 on the back of a record order backlog, and the vessel was formally ordered in January this year.
