Pioneering heavy lift jack-up vessel
The cruciform structural lay-out makes the solution more than 10% lighter than conventional designs. The concept aims to install the next generation 10-15 MW wind turbines in the same time frame as used today for installing 6-8 MW units.SOUL

Getting the best from oil and gas to offshore renewables
For generations, we have delivered ship designs to service oil and gas installations in the world’s harshest sea areas. Offshore wind is a new segment in the offshore family, and the knowledge of how the weather can impact the vessel is of great value when developing designs and solutions for offshore renewables.
The owner wanted to test Windea La Cour at high-speed backing
When the Windea La Cour, winner of the Offshore Renewables Award 2017, was on sea trial in June 2016, the Owner wanted to test the novel X-STERN. Watch video to see how she performed.
Why is backing preferred in SOVs?
Operational feedback shows that SOV crews choose to operate the vessels in astern mode up to 75% of the time at offshore wind farms. This number is very likely to increase further on the ‘Windea La Cour’ and the ‘Windea Leibniz’ vessels due to their X-STERNs.
