BMT Nigel Gee Ltd, a subsidiary of BMT Group, has announced that it has won a contract to supply the design for the construction of eight new 20m Windfarm Support Vessels, including options, to be built by Strategic Marine, the Australian Shipbuilder. 

The vessels are to be built for Njord Offshore Ltd, a subsidiary of Norse Management UK which has a long history in the marine industry.

This contract follows the signing of a teaming agreement between Strategic Marine and BMT in September last year and reinforces Strategic Marine’s ability to provide offshore windfarm support vessels into the European market.

Developed from BMT’s well-established range of Windfarm Support Vessels the Njord Offshore vessels will be 20m in length with a beam of 7m, powered by two MTU 8V2000M72 diesel engines with fixed pitch propellers and capable of speeds in excess of 25 knots. The vessels will be built to the DNV Wind Farm Service 1 notation and will be delivered later this year.
