Australian shipbuilder Strategic Marine delivers first of 8 Wind Farm Support Vessels (WSV) from its Singapore shipyard.

The 21 metre multipurpose vessel was built at the company's recently expanded Singapore shipyard for Madliena Shipping (Jersey) Ltd and will be managed by Njord Offshore Limited, a subsidiary of Norse Management UK, to be employed in wind farm crew transfer and support in European waters.

The offshore wind farm crew transfer and support vessels are among the most sophisticated in the market, built to DNV Class Rules - +IAI HSLC R2 Wind Farm Service 1. Each vessel will be powered by twin MTU 8V2000M72 engines and be capable of speeds up to 26 knots.

In addition, the vessels have been designed for crew comfort with multimedia and entertainment capacity, showers with hot water, full galley and a combination oven.

Strategic Marine's Business Development Manager, Paul Liddington, said the state-of-the-art catamaran was designed by world-renowned ship designer and business partner BMT Nigel Gee. "The launch of the first vessel is another Strategic Marine business milestone, demonstrating our company’s ability to apply its ship building expertise to a new market sector," he added.

Technical Director of BMT Nigel Gee, Ed Dudson, said the design guidelines for the new catamarans meet the challenges for enhanced operations in all manner of sea conditions.
