MPI Offshore in the UK says it recently celebrated the keel-laying ceremony for MPI Discovery, the second of two new wind turbine installation vessels currently under construction at the Cosco Nantong Shipyard in China.
The complex equipment and systems that will be installed on the two vessels are being manufactured at subcontractor facilities all around the world and shipped to China for final integration and commissioning on board the vessels.
MPI Adventure, the first of the two wind turbine installation vessels, will arrive in European waters in the first quarter of 2011, with MPI Discovery due to follow during the third quarter.
Following their arrival in European waters, MPI Adventure and MPI Discovery will join MPI Resolution, MPI Offshore’s first wind turbine installation vessel.
