Design & Construction of Wind Farm Support Vessels 2017
Vessel operators are keen for new Wind Farm Support Vessel (WFSV) designs to meet the changing demand of the offshore wind sector; larger vessels with improved sea keeping and greater payload capacity. As the Wind farms grow and mature, maintenance management is playing a larger role and changing the operational profile of the vessels. It is becoming more economic, and safe, for technicians to stay on station at the wind farms for longer periods. No longer are vessels speeding out to a turbine and back, but making numerous stops with a subsequent period of loitering before repeating the process on the way back to port. All of which places a different set of demands on the powering of the vessel.
