Ruud Lievaart, owner of Netherlands-based Sima Charters, has inked the agreement for a second CTruk 20T multi-purpose catamaran during Seawork International in Southampton this week. For CTruk this signing means that every client it works with has taken a second CTruk vessel, the company said.

The new 18.5m composite workboat, to be named SC Falcon, is expected to join Sima Charters’ expanding fleet of offshore tender boats in February 2014.

Instantly recognizable in the field from it bright yellow and blue livery, Sima Charters first CTruk 20T, SC Buzzard, has worked constantly on CWind contracts on London Array and Gwynt y Mor Offshore Wind Farms since its delivery in November last year, enjoying positive client feedback.

The CTruk 20T was chosen for its fuel-efficiency and the inherent flexibility of the design, the company said, with a (patent-applied) moveable wheelhouse and flexible modular pod system meaning the boat can reconfigure to meet the varied challenges of offshore wind support work.
