    Hybrid Heavy Transport Vessel For Offshore Wind Farms

    September 19, 2022 - Anonymous


      Vallianz Holdings Ltd. and its subsidiaries have joined forces with Ulstein Design & Solutions B.V., Shift Clean Energy and Bureau Veritas to collaborate on the design and construction of a heavy transport vessel (HTV) that will be the first of its kind in the global offshore wind industry.

      Designed for worldwide operations, the HTV will be deployed for the transportation of structures such as monopiles, jackets, transition pieces and turbine blades to support offshore wind farm projects, as well as heavy structure modules for LNG, and carry out floatover operations of offshore structures.

      Featuring zero-emission capability, the DP-2 vessel will be the first of its kind, as it will be driven by a hybrid power system consisting of alternative dual-fuel engines and a fully classed battery energy storage system. In addition, the HTV features the proven ULSTEIN X-BOW, which contributes to reduced energy consumption and provides more comfortable and safer operations when sailing through waves.

      The design of the HTV is developed by Ulstein Group, headquartered in Norway. The HTV's electric battery system is to be provided by Canadian-based Shift. The vessel will be classed by Bureau Veritas.

      Construction is expected to take up to 26 months, with planned completion by the end of 2024.
