Offshore Wind Farm vessels

A new and innovative combined CTV and SOV has been commissioned:

Equipped with a new design of W2W gangway, or B2W system as this one is called:


Damen appears to be aiming at the US market.
Here is their new CTV for US waters:

The Cable lay vessel Connector (Ex Lewek Connector) has been sold to Jan de Nul:

A vessel packed with equipment for many different tasks in the OWF and OOG industries worldwide.

Crowley to join in the fun:

Mostly aiming at LNG initially.

Recently the walk to work vessel ACTA CENTAURUS arrived at the dock location of Niestern Sander for maintenance works. This highly sophisticated offshore vessel of Acta Marine was brought at a height of 2.4 meters in dock 2:

Jan de Nul’s 191,5 m long JOSEPH PLATEAU is used for precise rock dumping to a depth of 2,000 m. The system for the unfolding of the fall pipe is extremely advanced and operates fully automatically. At the bottom of the fall pipe there is a ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) that accurately corrects the position of the lower end of the fall pipe. The vessel has a 31,500 ton loading capacity and makes it possible to dump 2,000 tons of rock per hour at a depth of 2,000 m. The vessel can accommodate 84 persons. The fall pipe vessel JOSEPH PLATEAU is mostly be deployed in the offshore industry in which oil and gas pipes have to be installed at large depths: the JOSEPH PLATEAU can level the seabad and dump rock up to a depth of 2,000 m. The fall pipe can process boulders with a diameter up to 400 mm, which is more than any other fall pipe vessel on the market.The JOSEPH PLATEAU is also suitable for deepsea mining operations, i.e. for recovery of minerals from the seabed and cable laying activities.

PS> The last hull in the series of 3 SOVs have just arrived at Havyard, Leirvik.
To be completed and delivered later this year.

Packed with equipment for multiple tasks in Offshore Wind Farm:
