Wind energy – service vessels
OSD-IMT from the Netherlands recently introduced the OSD-IMT9604 with a methanol fuelled mini-SOV.
This LOA 51 m design provides comfort for technicians and crew and offers wide operability. The mini SOV fills the gap between (large) CTV’s and the big SOV’s.
It is equipped with a Z-bridge Bring-2-Work system, which can work both as a technicians transfer system and as a motion compensated crane.
For light weather conditions the daughter craft can be used to transfer up to 2 windfarm service crews.
Accommodation space of up to 24 technicians, a covered storage area for spare parts and a battery hybrid power generation system driving the propulsion system make for a full-fledged DP2 SOV.
