Strategic Marine in Singapore has delivered a pair of 27-m crew transfer vessels (CTVs) to WEM Marine in the UK
Strategic Marine chief executive Chan Eng Yew said, “We are delighted to deliver these CTVs to WEM. It is a significant milestone for us as we continue to build our track record in the renewable energy sector.
“We have now delivered 23 CTVs to offshore wind vessel operators and have been in that market for more than 10 years.
“This is the first time we have offered comprehensive and flexible financial solutions, pre- and post-delivery, for our clients as part of a project. This is something we are looking to expand going forward.”
The 27-m CTVs were designed to meet the specific requirements of WEM who intend to deploy them in UK and European waters.
They are powered by two Caterpillar C32 engines driving fixed pitch propellers, providing a robust and efficient propulsion system. Twenty-four windfarm technicians and three crew can be comfortably accommodated on board. Personnel transfer to wind turbines is facilitated by a patented active fendering system.
