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.
