HSSB Presents New Generation of SWATH Vessels

first_imgMay 19, 2014 zoom Hvide Sande Shipyard (HSSB) has designed and developed a new generation of SWATH vessels for transportation of up to 12 service technicians and spare parts to offshore wind farms.The SWATH-vessel is designed as a 24 metres long, high speed, catamaran, built as a fully composite vessel, with the possibility of a semi-submersible SWATH-mode, which uses ballast water to stabilize the vessel and minimize heave and pitch forces during transfer of service technicians and spare parts.The vessel is designed with focus on a high level of performance and on a minimum of service and maintenance, because the vessel is designed with easy access to components and installations. The hull design causes a higher, maintained speed and a minimum of slamming, which raises the crew and passengers’ safety and comfort on-board.Beside a design as a regular service vessel, the SWATH-vessel can also be delivered with cabins for up to 10 service technicians and for the crew. In the way, the vessel can stay at the wind farm for a longer period.The SWATH-vessel enters HSSB current range of vessels for the offshore wind industry, which contains vessels from 11 to 55 metres, delivered as different types of crew transfer vessels and hotel vessels with daughter crafts.HSSB have recently delivered a various range of crew transfer vessels, including three vessels for the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm, one vessel for Horns Reef II and service vessels which today sails at wind farms in UK and Holland.last_img read more
