Offshore energy support vessel operator Seacat Services is preparing to launch its first high speed utility vessel, the Seacat Enterprise – a 27m catamaran which is a new category of support boat for the offshore wind sector.
In the maturing European offshore wind sector, the expectations of developers, contractors and project operators with respect to the capabilities of support vessel fleets are becoming increasingly defined.
The modern support vessel works seamlessly around the clock in conjunction with larger floatels and installation vessels to transfer both technicians and cargo to and from all project-critical infrastructure.
Currently under construction ahead of her scheduled launch in January 2017, Seacat Enterprise can carry up to four 20-foot containers, along with a full complement of 24 safety-trained personnel and six crew.
A new stern fender system allows cargo to be unloaded from the aft-deck via crane, increasing the range of options available for the transfer of key equipment at port and at sea.
