Wind energy – CTV
Strategic Marine, a Singapore-based shipbuilder, has finalized contracts to build an additional pair of the proven StratCat 26m Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) for WEM Marine.
WEM is a UK based offshore support vessel (OSV) provider with a growing fleet of new and technologically advanced vessels servicing the offshore wind energy sector.
The company placed its first order for two 27m CTVs with Strategic Marine in September 2020. The vessels were built in Singapore and have since been delivered to WEM in Southampton in July of 2021. This new second pair is scheduled for delivery in April 2022.
The CTVs have been designed to meet WEM’s specific requirements, they will be deployed in UK and European waters as part of the company’s growing fleet servicing the offshore wind energy market.
The vessels will be built to RINA class rules with the Green Star 3 notation and will also have a ‘Green Passport’ for safe ship recycling to meet WEM’s company ethos of reducing the environmental footprint of their operations.
