Our new Vessel and ADD-ON Support Tower Combination could be a smart and cost-efficient Offshore Installation Vessel for End-Users that are developing new Floating-wind Farms at any worldwide location. Most wind turbines today are fixed to the seabed and close to shore, so-called bottom fixed, in waters less than 60 metres deep. The next generation of offshore wind turbines are designed to be installed as floating and further out to sea, where winds are stronger and over longer periods of the year resulting in higher Clean Energy production. Jack-up Vessels are unable to assist due to the water depth and large Monohull Multi-purpose Offshore Installation Vessels will be needed to develop larger Floating Wind Farms.
Commercial Floating Wind Turbines are mostly in the early phase of development, the advantage of contracting only one single Multi-purpose Offshore Installation Vessel to install all parts needed for a Floating wind farm could be favorable and especially so in remote areas with large cost reductions on transportation, installation and mobilisation cost.
