    Fjellstrand develops offshore windfarm vessel

    Vessel & ROV News // October 1, 2009

    Fjellstrand shipyard in Norway says it has developed what it describes as a "unique" new design concept for a support and rescue vessel for the fast-growing offshore windfarm market.

    The vessel was specially developed for the offshore wind turbine market, and has a newly-developed stabilisation system which provides a stable and comfortable work platform.

    Said Fjellstrand: "The trimaran hull provides a unique combination of efficient operation, excellent performance and manoeuvrability at the offshore windfarm. The vessel can have a rescue zone and a powerful daughter craft installed."
