MPI Offshore has announced the acquisition of Victoria Mathias from RWE Innogy. Victoria Mathias is a 2011-built wind-turbine-installation vessel, designed to transport, lift and install wind turbines and their foundations.
Key features include a 1,000-tonne-capacity main crane, a maximum operating depth of 45 metres and the ability to jack with 4,350 tonnes of cargo on board. MPI has also purchased a range of installation equipment, including a pile hammer, pile gate, specialist lifting tackle and numerous vessel spares, all of which complement the ship’s operations. Victoria Mathias will be renamed “MPI Enterprise” and will operate under the Dutch flag. The vessel has been delivered to MPI in early January 2015 and will continue her current charter at RWE Innogy’s offshore wind farm Nordsee Ost off the German coast. Both partners have agreed confidentiality concerning the purchase price.
