CFE Delivers Skirts for New Surface Effect Ship
CHECKMATE FLEXIBLE ENGINEERING has delivered the first set of skirts for Umoe’s high speed surface effect ship for wind turbine servicing. Servicing can account for up to 25% of the whole life cost of an offshore wind farm so rapid access in a wide range of sea conditions is important to maximise return on investment. The new Umoe craft permits personnel transfer in bigger waves and saves time in transit. Umoe Wind AS, who will operate the craft for Dong Energy, is acquiring a second vessel in 2015.
