UK-based Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) has redesigned the internal arrangements on its new crew transfer vessel, Manor Endurance, to provide social distancing and greater safety for offshore wind technicians and crew
MRE’s new vessel, which is currently under construction, is due to be delivered in July 2020, and was originally designed to transport 24 passengers.
In order to meet social distancing requirements, the design has been amended and now allows for 12 offshore technicians to be transported safely with 2-m social distancing.
The updated layout for windfarm technicians on the vessel is effectively split between the port and starboard sides, with seven seats in one half and five in the other.
Each section of the vessel is accessed from a dedicated entrance and has separate mess rooms, toilets and shower, ensuring each team is isolated from the other.
A series of virtual tour videos has been released by the company, detailing the updated Covid-19 compliant vessel, together with virtual walk-throughs of the port and starboard sides of the vessel, highlighting the safety measures that have been implemented.
Riviera will host a week of free to attend 45-minute webinars focused on offshore wind commencing 8 June. Register your interest now
