Wind Energy – Installation Vessel
Singapore-headquartered Cyan Renewables has contracted Ulstein Design & Solutions as the designer of a series of new floating foundation installation vessels (FFIV) dedicated to offshore wind.
With an increasing lack of heavy lift installation vessels, these new FFIVs are needed to fill the gap and will enable Cyan to support the offshore wind industry in meeting its global ambitions.
Torgeir E. Ramstad, Cyan’s Managing Director FFIV Division says: “Cyan Renewables will be a leading global vessel provider to offshore wind by partnering with Developers and EPCI and T&I contractors based on future-proof vessels in all categories.”
The new FFIVs will feature adequate deck space and crane capacity to meet developments in foundation design, including monopiles and jackets. In addition, they will also have low emission capability, using a hybrid power system consisting of dual-fuel engines (methanol), shore power and a battery energy storage system.
