Ulstein Verft has delivered the Service Operation Vessel ‘Windea Jules Verne’ to Bernhard Schulte Offshore. The hybrid vessel will work at the German Merkur Offshore Wind farm, where she will be operating for GE Renewable Energy.
The vessel is based on the Ulstein SX195 design and measures 93.4 metres in length and 18 metres in the beam. It has accommodation for 120 people. The vessel functions as a ‘home away from home’ for numerous offshore wind service engineers as well as the ship’s crew. The vessel is equipped with a tower holding a personnel and equipment elevator and a heave compensated gangway for safe transferral to the offshore wind turbines for maintenance and service work.
