Strategic Marine (S) Pte Ltd, a leading Singapore based shipbuilder and part of Strategic Marine Holdings Pte Ltd, delivered a pair of 27m CTVs to WEM Marine Ltd, a UK-based offshore support vessel (OSV) provider with a growing fleet servicing the renewable offshore wind energy sector.
This is WEM’s first order with the Strategic Marine Group.
The CTVs were both built in Singapore and construction proceeded smoothly despite Covid-19 restrictions and was completed according to schedule.
The 27m crew transfer vessels have been designed to meet the specific requirements of WEM who intends to deploy the vessels in UK and European waters.
The vessels are powered by two Caterpillar C32 engines driving fixed pitch propellers providing a robust and efficient propulsion system.
24 technicians and three crew can be comfortably accommodated onboard and personnel transfer to the wind turbines is facilitated by a patented active fendering system.
“We are delighted to deliver these new CTVs to WEM as it is a significant milestone for us as we continue to build our track record in the renewable energy sector.
“With 23 CTV’s now delivered to offshore wind vessel operators and more than 10 years in this market our team have been able to deliver two of our best ever vessels to service the growing renewable energy market.” said Mr Chan Eng Yew, CEO of Strategic Marine.
