Energy Vessels Offshore Limited – New Wind Farm Service Vessel Range

Energy Vessels Offshore Limited(EVO) has launched its range of wind farm service vessels specifically designed to transport service crews to and from offshore wind turbines. The vessels range in size from 18 to 24 metres and come in semi-displacement and high speed versions. They will be constructed by EVO in New Zealand to take advantage of the low Kiwi Dollar and the exceptional build-quality achievable locally.

Lars Bjorklund, EVO’s sales director, reports that brokers have been appointed to represent EVO in Europe. “We are targeting European sales at this point in time to help meet the shortage of suitable service vessels that will occur over the next few years.” He goes on to say “Our products are innovative and technically advanced. Our flagship is based on a foil assisted catamaran platform, utilising state of the art propulsion which avoids the use of water-jets and the operational problems experienced by their use.” Interestingly, Mr Bjorklund hints at further features which put the EVO models in a class of their own; “The process of carrying and landing technicians on offshore wind turbines in a range of weather conditions has been given particular attention. We have applied solutions that provide for the comfort of passengers in transit at high speed, even in seas with significant wave heights, and then when it comes time to land them on the turbine our vessels exhibit superior stability at rest combined with the most advanced crew transfer systems available”.

Full details of what is on offer from EVO will be released within the next few days and is bound to cause a stir within the offshore energy industry.
