Maritime Partner AS has signed a contract with Norwind Offshore for delivery of a Workboat and Davit for their new Vard 4 19 design. Initially, the work boat is connected to the service vessel "Norwind Gale TBN" which is being built by Vard Group, for the wind power industry. The work boat, an ALUSAFE 1250WF, is specially built for the transport of service personnel and goods from the service vessel to the wind turbines.
Continuing the "Green Transition"
"We are continuing the transition from traditional offshore investments to offshore wind power with this contract. Norwind Offshore is a competent customer with significant ambitions in wind power, the fact that they have chosen Maritime Partner as a supplier is something we are very proud of, and we look forward to continuing the collaboration. We have worked purposefully towards this important market for several years now and have built up good references within this market, says Henrik Myklebust, Vice President Sales at Maritime Partner. Both hull and superstructure are produced in partially recycled aluminium, which can be recycled again when the boat's life span is over. In addition, the engines installed are among the most environmentally friendly on the market, Myklebust continues.
Quality and comfort
ALUSAFE 1250 WF will be equipped with a gyro stabilizer to improve the working environment and comfort for the technicians and crew. The propulsion system is of the Volvo Penta IPS type, which meets the new strict emission requirements imposed by the EU on the shipping industry (IMO Tier III). Good maneuverability, improved acceleration, reduced noise and vibration, ease of use and easy service access are among the features of this system.
