#WFSVlaunch- A third offshore Wind-Farm Service Vessel (WFSV) was launched in late September from Arklow Marine Services boatyard.
The 19m newbuild vessel is the first of a new design which is intended for the upcoming Round 3 offshore sites for the Renewable Offshore Industry in the U.K.
The WFSV has an overall length (LOA) of 20.75m and a beam of 7.36m. The vessel is powered by twin MAN main engines. Each engine develops 1,000 BHP and are coupled to twin Rolls Royce FF550 water jets.
A sprint speed of 30 knots and a service speed of 25 knots. Sea-trials were scheduled prior to the WFSV's introduction into operating at one of the UK's burgeoning new offshore wind -farm sites.
#WindFarmCraft – Wicklow based Island Shipping's 17 metre Wind-farm Service Vessel (WFSV) Island Panther has completed another charter in the North Sea.
Island Panther had been working out of Hartlepool for a solid 75 days and recorded a 100% reliability. The WFSV had been transporting Siemens technicians in the final construction stages of EDF's 62 MW Teeside Offshore Windfarm.
Island Panther combines industry leading characteristics through its construction, hull shape, revolutionary bow-fendering and highly maneuverable waterjet propulsion.
This enables the craft to perform operating a comfortable transit to and from the worksite for offshore wind-farm personnel.
