Wind Energy – WTIV
NOV has received contracts from Sembcorp Marine Ltd to supply equipment for the wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) it is building for Maersk Supply Service.
The equipment order is an important milestone for NOV’s Marine and Construction business unit as NOV-BLM will supply the rack and pinion jacking systems and the load transfer system while NOV Heavy Lift will deliver the GustoMSC designed heavy lift crane.
This order enables Marine and Construction to support Maersk in streamlining its offshore operations.
Maersk Supply Service has developed an installation concept that combines a new WTIV design with a patented load transfer system. The WTIV jack-up vessel is designed to remain in operation while feeder barges and tugboats transport turbine components from the port to the wind farm.
