FEATURE SPONSOR OPERATION & MAINTENANCE


Once the Greater Gabbard windfarm was completed, the focus then switched to operation & maintenance, with the Iceni Pride acting as rapid response vessel, running parts and personnel to wherever they were required. The Pride was a faster, more flexible and more cost effective alternative to the traditional support vessels available at that time – earning itself a reputation as the windfarm’s Swiss army knife! During these contracts Iceni had over


20 offshore and office personnel involved in the project – with director’s Richard Thurlow and Guy Gibson continuing to skipper. Seimens were delighted with the service delivered by Iceni, which in turn led to the awarding of another contract on the Teeside Windfarm. The experience gained on Greater Gabbard led Iceni to work with South Boats IOW in developing the next generation of crew transfer vessels. With deeper drafts and improved transit facilities, the subsequent vessels such as Iceni Venture and Vengeance were designed to operate more effectively in a broader spectrum of sea states.


NEW VESSELS


2017 has witnessed the launch of two new vessels, Iceni Defender & Legend. These new vessels are both South Boats IOW 23m, developed following an extensive hull form research and development programme, ensuring that the vessels can operate in the harshest environments and deliver technicians fit and able to fulfil their tasks offshore. Both vessels will be powered by twin MAN V12-1400 main engines - Iceni Defender is fitted with Hamilton HM651 water jet units whilst Iceni Legend features Servogear HD295 reduction ‘V’ drive gearboxes driving a Servogear Ecoflow Propulsor system with 1225mm CPP propellers.


The vessels both have resiliently mounted superstructures ensuring low noise and vibration levels for 12 personnel whilst passaging to and from site, together with forward and aft cargo decks capable of carrying 15 tonnes of equipment.


CLASS LEADERS


The 23m vessels in service with Iceni Marine Services provide class leading sea keeping and transfer capabilities. In January 2016, one of Iceni’s existing 23m CTV’s registered safe transfers in 2.2m HSig with a passage speed of over

27kts in the same condition. During sea trials, one utility company representative on-board stated that fuel efficiency at 23 knots was 35% better than a smaller, significantly less capable vessel he had on charter in Germany at that time. Richard further explained: “Iceni Marine


Services is constantly striving to punch above our size – so Iceni Defender & Legend, together with our new premises and spares centre in Lowestoft, gives us one of the most technically advanced and versatile CTV fleets currently in operation in the UK. Being part of the Turner Group also deepens our offering, with expert site management, temporary power solutions and a pool of highly experienced personnel – all available through Turner Wind.”


SEAFARING TRADITIONS


Iceni Marine Services is rooted in the seafaring traditions of the East of England, with the directors, skippers and crew having met through involvement with Caister Lifeboat. With their base in Lowestoft ideally positioned to provide support throughout the region, Iceni continues to go from strength to strength.
