Diamond Exploration Vessel

On Saturday 9. January 2016, the highly specialized and technologically advanced SS Nujoma, slid down the slipway at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

SS Nujoma, owned by Debmarine Namibi, is a deep water mineral exploration vessel with a primary focus on diamonds. It is the most advanced marine diamond exploration vessel in the world.



Upon completion of outfitting and sea trials the ship continues to South Africa for installation of the subsea mineral sampling system. SS Nujoma is scheduled for commissioning in Namibian water in the first half of 2017.

The 113 metre-long diesel-electric powered vessel will have a displacement of 12,000 tonnes and will accommodate a crew of 80. Additionally it is equipped with a helicopter deck.

The switchboards were completed by Polish CUBIC partner HG Solution Sp. Z.o.o. and included three main switchboards (690 V, 440 V, 230 V), one emergency switchboard, one MCC switchboard and a switchboard dedicated to mission equipment.
