CWind wins contract for 6 CTruk 20T multi-purpose cats to provide crew & load transfer services at Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm.

Cwind say that this is their largest vessel contract win, and the six workboats will arrive on site over the next two months as construction activity picks up.

The two most recent additions to CWind’s charter fleet, 'CWind Adventure' and 'SC Buzzard', are the first vessels to join the Siemens team at Gwynt y Môr. Both are of CTruk’s proven 20T MPC design, delivering a very cost-effective package, including class leading fuel efficiency – burning half the fuel of a comparable alloy crew vessel.

Peter Jorgensen, Managing Director of CWind commented, 'I am delighted that CWind has won this contract from Siemens. We have worked on four wind farms with Siemens and this significant contract win confirms that our charter fleet delivers versatile workboats that are highly capable, safe and very cost-effective. To have two of our boats go to one of the largest offshore wind farm project in construction for their maiden charter, in my eyes, is a reflection of the outstanding vessel performance of our existing fleet as well as our committed skippers.'

Chris Ventre, Senior Project Manager Siemens for the Gwynt y Môr project, commented on the contract, 'This is the largest crew transfer vessel contract Siemens has awarded to a single vessel supplier in relation to a UK offshore wind farm to date. In awarding the contract we took into consideration vessel performance, fuel consumption and vessel availability rates as well as the team capabilities at CWind. With a project as large and complex as the Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm it is important for us to have total confidence in the ability of the skippers and their crew and in the quality of the vessels. With CWind we have that confidence.'
