Wind energy – CTV
Singapore-based Sam Pan Marine Holdings has ordered six Strat Cat 27 vessels from Strategic Marine, with an option to build and deliver six more vessels.
Sam Pan Marine Holdings has also appointed Strategic Marine Group as the exclusive commercial agent to provide commercial management services for the new crew transfer vessels, including marketing the vessels for bareboat charter or sale.
The new CTVs to be delivered in Q2 2022 onwards will be a combination of Hybrid and Hybrid-Ready vessels, positioning Strategic Marine to be the first builder of such vessels in Asia (ex-China).
Strategic Marine’s recently launched SC27 crew transfer vessel (CTV) has been designed specifically for the offshore windfarm and renewables market, building on the company’s successful and best-selling Strat Cat 26 (SC26) design.
The SC27, built in conjunction with design partner BMT has been designed with environmental and operational flexibility in mind. It can be fitted with a hybrid propulsion system to reduce main engine hours and maintenance, cut vessel noise and vibration and, depending on the vessel’s operational profile and charging facilities, may reduce the vessel’s carbon footprint. The CTV can be fitted with various engine and propulsion options and can reach speeds of more than 30 knots.
