NOV has launched the Enhydra Floating Wind Installation Vessel (FWIV) concept. Its modular and integrated design enables the installation and hookup of various floater types, mooring systems, and dynamic cables, streamlining complex offshore operations.
The FWIV concept arises from partnerships involving not just NOV's Marine and Construction business unit but also input from offshore wind developers, EPIC contractors, and specialist original equipment manufacturers. The GustoMSC vessel design offers a flexible deck layout and specific provisions for mission equipment integration, including electric subsea cranes from Lifting and Handling and Remacut cable-lay systems. The FWIV is the next design in GustoMSC's Enhydra offshore wind support vessel series.
