Wind Energy – HTV
Singapore-based Vallianz Holdings contracted Ulstein Design & Solutions for the development of their new, hybrid heavy transport vessel (HTV).
The new vessel will be unique as it will feature dual-fuel engines and a battery energy storage system.
Designed for worldwide operations, the HTV will serve the growing transport demand in the offshore wind industry as well as for LNG modules and offshore structures.
Her dimensions are optimised to support Vallianz’s business case for not only transporting wind structures like monopiles, jackets, transition pieces and turbine blades, but also to carry out floatover operations of offshore structures.
Featuring zero-emission capability, the DP-2 vessel will be the first of its kind, as it will be driven by a hybrid power system consisting of dual-fuel engines and a battery energy storage system.
