Strategic Marine confirms orders for windfarm service vesselsYard News // August 1, 2013
Strategic Marine has announced that Njord Offshore, a UK-based operator of crew transfer vessels for the growing European offshore windfarm sector, has confirmed options for two more crew transfer and service vessels, taking the total order to eight vessels.
Tom Mehew of Njord Offshore said: “The details of the design combined with the excellent build quality of our 21m crew transfer vessels has been fantastically received by all our crew and Charterers. We are delighted to be ordering more vessels with Strategic Marine.”
So far, Strategic has delivered six vessels to Njord Offshore. The first, Njord Advocet, completed her maiden charter on the Greater Gabbard Windfarm for SSE and will join her sister vessels off the European Mainland off Germany.
Njord Kittiwake is now working off Denmark and Njord Curlew and Lapwing off Germany. Njord Puffin and Petrel were delivered last month at Strategic’s shipyard in Singapore and have just arrived in Europe.
Njord Puffin will go straight onto charter in Germany, whilst Njord Petrel is still currently available for charter.
All the Njord vessels are designed by BMT to DNV and MCA flag regulations, ensuring the vessels can operate without restriction anywhere off the European mainland.
