Bernhard Schulte inks wind vessel contract with Ulstein Verft

Ulstein Verft has inked a contract with Bernhard Schulte to build a service operation vessel for its wind project arm WINDEA Offshore.

The SX195 design vessel has been modified to meet the requirements by GE Renewable Energy for its German wind farm Merkur Offshore. The vesels has a centrally positioned walk to work motion compensated gangway & elevator tower for personnel and cargo transfers and a 3D compensated crane capable of 2-ton cargo lifts is available.  The vessel has a capacity for 120 people.

 We have worked closely and successfully together on two former projects, and these vessels are operating very good in the field," said Matthias Müller, managing director at Bernhard Schulte Offshore.
