Offshore Turbine Services (OTS) has ordered two more CTruk 20T MPCs for delivery in spring 2014.

The inking of this latest order comes as the company prepare to name their fifth CTruk multi-purpose cat in Brightlingsea this week, the Commodore P.

CTruk explain that from the start OTS’ operations director, Nick Bright, has worked closely with CTruk on enhancing the 20T design to fit their specific requirements. With his years of experience as a commercial fisherman, there is little Nick doesn’t know about the demands made on these boats at sea on 24/7 offshore operations.

Originally a staunch aluminium fan, he recalls his first experience of the composite 20T as ‘a real light bulb moment’. Cruising at 20 knots on the CWind Alliance, Nick ran a real-time fuel consumption comparison with his son, who was skippering a 15m aluminium vessel at the time. Their subsequent discovery that the 3.5m larger 20T was nearly 45% more efficient, at the same speed and with the same payload, was a key point in Nick’s conversion to composite craft.

CTruk is pleased to continue the close relationship it has built with OTS. Chairman Andy White commented, ‘It has been an absolute pleasure doing business with the OTS team and I am glad that we can now build on this superlative relationship with these two new orders.’

All five existing OTS vessels are currently at work on CWind contracts around the UK.

The innovative CTruk 20T MPC composite workboat is gaining popularity in the offshore wind support sector, and the company will have one of these robust vessels on the pontoon at Seawork in Southampton next month.
