Colchester-based offshore service vessel manufacturer CTruk has won an order to supply two more of its MPC22 boats to sister company CWind.
The pair of 22-metre multi-purpose catamaran Wind Farm Service Vessels (WFSVs) will be delivered this summer, joining the first member of the class, the CWind Sword, which is currently operating at the EnBW Baltic 2 wind farm off the coast of Germany.
Peter Jorgensen, CWind managing director, said: “CTruk’s 22m WFSV has proven to be a valuable addition to the CWind fleet, particularly from a passenger comfort perspective.
“There is ample space on this vessel for technicians to change and stow wet kit before moving into the main seating area for a comfortable transit which is of key importance when working in challenging weather conditions.
“She is also effectively executing load carrying and refuelling duties as part of her current contract, with the large, reconfigurable payload area giving multi-role capability. That makes her a very sound investment and we eagerly await delivery of the next two.”

The next MPC22 to leave the production line, the 27th WFSV that CTruk has produced since its launch five years ago, will make an appearance at the Seawork event in Southampton from June 16 to 18 2015 before she is officially handed over. The CTruk team will exhibit on stand B9 with the vessel on display at berth V25.
