CWind has taken ownership of the 27.4-metre CWind Phantom crew transfer vessel, which becomes the company’s largest CTV.
The catamaran can hold 20,000 litres of fuel, has a 20-tonne cargo capacity, and increases CWind’s CTV fleet to 18 vessels. It can carry up to 12 passengers, with berths for eight people in air-conditioned and heated accommodation.
The vessel is powered by two Man D2862 main engines and is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 27 knots. CWind said the vessel will be available to start work on 1 March.
CWind managing director for power Lee Andrews said: “The CWind Phantom is designed to exhibit reliability, superior fuel efficiency, high transfer height during operations and a large, flexible payload capability, all crucial specifications for the harsh conditions far from shore. This investment enables us to provide a more integrated offering for both the construction and operations and maintenance phases of an offshore wind farm project.”
