The launch of OE72-001

May 12, 2021 | Launch, OQS News

OE72-001 was launched yesterday, and once again the whole process was untroubled and effective!

The team got together early in the morning to start the final preparations before she was lifted up on the truck. Once she was secured on the truck, the slow and steady transportation towards the port of Jakobstad began. After an hour had passed she was safely in the port and ready to be lifted up again to be launched. There was a very happy and proud atmosphere throughout the whole process, but it was amplified when she hung in the lifting straps and was lowered to the surface of the sea.

The mast stepping and rigging took place in the same evening and the end result was fantastic thanks to the efficacy and competence in the team.

We are very much looking forward to the initial sea trials!
