CWind, a provider of services to the offshore wind industry, has placed an order for four new crew transfer vessels from Aluminium Marine Consultants (AMC), a shipbuilding and consulting company based on the Isle of Wight. The order consists of two 23m aluminum catamarans and two 26m aluminum catamarans.
CWind currently manages a fleet of 22 dedicated offshore wind crew transfer vessels but this is the first time the company has ordered aluminum vessels.
Peter Jorgensen, Managing Director CWind, commented on the addition to the CWind fleet: "The new larger vessels will boost our fleet’s capability and thus enhance our ability to serve our clients’ requirements. In ordering these vessels we took a strategic decision to diversify our fleet and thus be able to offer a wider range of options to the market as the industry grows.”
