State of the art workboat Cwind Sword launched14.01.2015
The first-of-class Ctruk MPC22, CWind Sword, has been launched. The 22m multi-role composite workboat is the lates addition to CWind’s fleet of more than 20 crew transfer vessels. CWind Sword has been built for UK based offshore wind service provider CWind and its boats share partner, Ventus Workboats. CWind Sword started on a CWind contract for ENBW on the Baltic 2 offshore wind farm in December.
CTruk MPC22 is a 22m multi-purpose catamaran with 7.5m beam and 1.25m draft constructed from advanced FRP composite for weight-saving and strength. With a 20 tonne flexible payload capability and the ability to carry 24,000 litres of fuel, she is designed to deal with rougher seas, longer transits and tougher assignments whilst maximising passenger and crew comfort.
New features on this vessel include a protected Servogear Ecoflow Propulsor™ system, coupled with the Volvo D13 engines, will give optimal bollard pull and service speeds, while still allowing the boat to take the ground and dry out at low water.
Peter Jorgensen, Managing Director CWind, was delighted to take delivery of the vessel: “The CWind Sword, with its superior payload capability and exceptional comfort in transit, represents the next step in our ambitious logistics mix expansion programme, which will enable us to deliver a unique mix of vessels in locations across Europe that will give our customers maximum performance and value. We are delighted that the vessel will deliver outstanding benefits to our customers in both construction and O&M phases. In Ventus Workboats, we have found an experienced and seasoned partner with the determination and skills needed to deliver the best possible service to our clients.
