The ‘Marineco Thunderbird’ is UK-based Marineco’s fourth FCS 2610 Twin Axe to join its windfarm support fleet of vessels.

Marineco was the first customer to buy one of these vessels nearly two and a half years ago, based on a design for an Offshore and Offshore Wind support vessel which Damen really believed in. The recent purchase of Thunderbird, Damen say, is proof of the concept and its future.

Siemens will be deploying Thunderbird off the west coast of England, where it will be used to perform installation and maintenance work for Walney Offshore Windfarms. The vessel’s superstructure is spacious, offering sleeping accommodation (four two-person cabins) and making it possible for the crew to stay on-site for longer periods of time. 


Damen Shipyards add that they have a long and solid relationship with Marineco. Every vessel in Marineco’s fleet is a Damen vessel. This enables their experienced crews to offer optimum service in the fields of towing, anchor handling, cable laying, dredge-pipe connection, ship-to-ship transfers, coastline restoration and pushboat handling.
