The ‘Rix Tiger’ is the second of the new Wave Captain-class of wind farm support vessels (WFSV) to be completed for Rix by UK's Alnmaritec and she will join her sister ‘Rix Panther’ in serving the offshore wind industry.

The vessel design features the latest high efficiency hull form developed by the Alnmaritec design department.  She is powered by twin Cummins QSK 19 800 bhp diesel engines, coupled to ZF 2000V gearboxes driving twin 5 blade propellers.  The new WFSV achieved a cruising speed of 24 knots and has demonstrated exceptional sea keeping characteristics during recent sea trials. In addition she boasts a resiliently mounted wheelhouse which minimises noise and vibration, a large cargo area forward, and she also has two single berth crew cabins below decks.

Alnmaritec Managing Director Chris Millman explains, “We have been building the boats used for wind farm crew transfer since the industry began in the early 2000’s so we understand what clients are looking for from their boats.  We are constantly reviewing and improving our offering as a result of close working relationships with our clients in the sector and we are delighted with our latest delivery, the Rix Tiger.”
