Delay in the Delivery.
In 2021 the REV Ocean Board and Management team reported a strong delay in the project.
” The REV Ocean vessel has been beset by delays caused by the yard. We have been hoping the situation would improve, but compounding issues are causing further setbacks. We have not received a timeline for when a compliant ship will be delivered. Our own best estimate suggests a three to five year delay for when the vessel can be placed in operation. This is related to technical and weight challenges, and the ship is as of today not in accordance with the specifications in the shipbuilding contract. Delivery can first take place when the ship is able to conduct the research and expedition missions which the ship is intended for.
