wind farm offshore support vessel / Walk to Work
for wind farms, Walk to Work
93.4 m (306'05")
Service Operation Vessel (SOV) for the offshore wind industry, also attractive for work in O&M (Operation and Maintenance) or construction support.
The design is modified to fulfil the GE Renewable Energy tender requirements and the ship owner’s special choices of mission equipment. It has a large, centrally positioned walk to work motion compensated gangway & elevator tower for personnel and cargo transfers. Furthermore, a 3D compensated crane capable of 2-ton cargo lifts is available. The optimised on-board logistics includes large storage capacities, of which half is under roof in a controlled environment, and stepless approach to the offshore installations. The vessel is equipped with a fuel-efficient drive system including battery-solution from ULSTEIN. With all main equipment and operations in the aft ship, the vessel will naturally operate astern while in-field. Keeping the X-STERN® towards the weather, there will be no slamming, noise or vibrations caused by the waves. The crew will get complete rest between shifts.
