Why is backing preferred in SOVs?
Operational feedback shows that SOV crews choose to operate the vessels in astern mode at least 50% of the time at wind farms. This number is very likely to increase from the next generation of SOVs, starting with the ‘Windea La Cour’.
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.
Why should SOVs be the standard at offshore wind farms?
Offshore Wind Farms are being established further from shore. At some point, overnight stays for the service technicians become necessary, and the transport normally done by Crew Transfer Vessels must be replaced by other transport tools. Service Operation Vessels are becoming the new standard.

Cost-effective vessel conversion using standardized modules
With predefined modules, a vessel can be mobilized for other types of work within a few days without intervening in the ship structure. When mission is completed, the module can easily be demounted.Standardized design modules
