The vessel will be servicing the Gemini offshore wind park offshore the Netherlands.
Both vessels are based on the SX175 design from ULSTEIN, and are equipped with the hull features X-BOW and X-STERN in order to improve the sea
characteristics when the vessels are positioned alongside the wind turbines during transferral of service technicians from the vessel through a heave compensated gangway.
The vessels have accommodation for 60 persons in single cabins, of which 40 cabins are dedicated to technicians. The final detailed arrangements and
equipment for the vessels have been developed and specified in cooperation with WINDEA Offshore GmbH & Co. KG, which is the Bernhard Schulte Offshore’s affiliate for offshore wind projects.
The offshore wind industry is a growing industry. The strong, consistent winds sweeping over the oceans are invaluable resources to potentially supply
large quantities of renewable energy.
