Eden Rose, the second of Tidal Transit’s fleet of windfarm service vessels, was launched on 30 March 2012 by its Spanish boat builder, Mercurio Plastics. Like its sister Ginny Louise, it is a purpose designed vessel for use by companies involved in the planning, development and construction of offshore wind farms in the Greater Wash and southern North Sea.
 

MCA Cat 1 coding and 10,000 litre fuel tanks allow the vessels to work up to 150 miles offshore. The vessel provides four crew members and twelve passengers with beds, galley, bathroom, internet access and entertainment facilities, allowing wind farm engineers and support technicians  to live and work offshore  for up several days at a time. Being of rugged GRP construction enables Tidal Transit’s vessels to operate in rough seas. Twin V12 MAN engines facilitate speeds of up to 27 knots when carrying twelve passengers, the crew, and their on-board cargo. The cargo decks fore and after can accommodate up to 10,000kg of tools, equipment and spares, and the Guerra crane on the fore deck has a lifting capacity of 1,025kg at 6.9m which caters for long reach loading and unloading.  Cranes can be be deployed for camera surveys and grab sampling.
