The XSS is currently in transit to the open sea in order for trials to commence in the coming weeks.

We are confident that these vessels will set a new benchmark for quality and capability in the offshore wind market. We are now looking forward to these vessels entering service and continuing our support to deliver state of the art designs which are designed specifically to meet our customers requirements."
