Wind Energy – CSOV
Windcat is committed to further expanding its CSOV fleet and has placed an additional order of two Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) with Damen Shipyards.
This order increases Windcat’s CSOV fleet to a total of five vessels, leaving the option of acquiring a sixth vessel. This development follows the initial announcement made in November 2022 regarding the construction of a series of hydrogen-powered CSOVs, the “Elevation Series”.
The Elevation Series CSOVs features a pioneering design that significantly enhances capabilities and flexibility compared to traditional vessels. The CSOVs are 87 m long, 20 m wide and can accommodate up to 120 people on board. The vessels are equipped with a state-of-the-art gangway, crane, thrusters, hybrid battery technology and offshore charging capability.
The first three vessels are currently under construction in Vietnam and will be delivered in 2025.
The delivery of the two additional CSOVs is expected in Q2 and Q3 of 2026, increasing Windcat’s capacity to deliver efficient and sustainable offshore services.
