CWind in contract to service new London Array wind farm
A contract to service the London Array offshore wind farm has been awarded to UK company CWind.

Under the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) contract, the Colchester firm will provide two 22 m crew transfer vessels, 19m CWind Alliance and 22m CWind Artimus.

The vessels will operate out of Ramsgate, Kent, where the wind farm is located 20 km offshore.

The assignment is the first for CWind Artimus following its naming in June. Constructed from Carbon Fibre at boatbuilder CTruk’s facility in Colchester, the 22 m crew boat is capable of a top speed of 30 knots, carrying up to a 30 tonne payload or 24,000 litres of fuel.

“We’re very pleased to return to London Array and support their O&M activities,” said Bruce Clements, business development manager at CWind. “We are delighted to have won this contract following a challenging competitive tender process and we look forward to working with London Array Ltd and its partners over the coming years. This contract award is further recognition of our innovative vessel solutions providing our customers in O&M with a winning combination.”
