The most successful development of new products are often based on recycling familiar technology, but quite likely improved and made use of in new ways. The Havyard 832 SOV design is a good example of this. This design is based on our PSVs where we have incorporated technology that is used to serve the needs for service and maintenance of offshore windmill installations. "
