CREW TRANSFER


COMBATTING CONDITIONS FURTHER OFFSHORE


Developments in the offshore wind energy sector are pushing windfarms further and further offshore


With this comes a clear requirement for reliable support vessels, such as those able to transfer crew, technicians and cargo, to function in increasingly challenging conditions. Transfers in high wave heights can be a challenging environment for all on-board if the right vessel is not specified.


ADDRESSING THE NEED CWind, part of the Global Marine Group delivers the company’s power capabilities and helps address this need with its Phantom CTV (crew transfer vessel), the largest of its 16-strong CTV fleet. At 27m overall length, the robust Phantom catamaran is ideal for working at remote windfarms. The vessel benefits from high transfer heights and extremely good manoeuvrability for her size. Furthermore, she is powered by two MAN D2862 main engines that enable speeds up to 27kn.


The Phantom can carry up to 12 passengers, with berths for eight people. The accommodation is fully air-conditioned and heated and offers all the amenities required to remain at sea for extended periods, thus ensuring the safe and comfortable transfer of technicians, even in rough weather conditions. The vessel is also fuel efficient and provides a large, flexible payload capability. Having already successfully completed several projects across the UK, she will be deployed to work on a project in the North Sea later this year.


ADDITIONAL VESSEL FEATURES Additionally, two of CWind’s other CTVs, CWind Fulmar and CWind Endurance, are SWATH (small waterplane area twin hull) vessels, fitted with manual motion stabilisation control systems that provide pitch, roll and heave motion to ensure safe crew transfers to the turbine.


SWATH CTVs are designed to cut through waves, rather than ride over them. This unique feature enables them to comfortably maintain service speeds, reducing crew fatigue and sickness during long and difficult transits. The result for customers is an increased window of work.


COMBATTING HARSH SEA CONDITIONS The CWind Fulmar, Endurance and Phantom are all specifically designed to combat harsh sea conditions found further offshore, with the reliability and stability to ensure efficient transfer amid significant wave heights, providing passengers with a smooth, safe passage and customers with decreased downtime.
