The ‘Windea Leibniz’ wind farm service vessel has been delivered from Ulstein Verft to Bernhard Schulte Offshore and ICBC Leasing. The vessel carries the name of the German mathematician, philosopher and physicist Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, who in the 17th century proposed to use wind power to operate pumps.
The naming ceremony was held in Ulsteinvik, Norway, at the Ulstein Verft yard premises. The vessel has been designed by Ulstein Design & Solutions AS. Starting from April, the vessel will work at the 72 wind turbine Sandbank wind farm in the German Bight for Siemens Wind Power Service. The vessel has the X-STERN hull shape, which allows it to be positioned with the stern faced towards the weather instead of the bow only.
