The Modular Service and Operations Vessel (MSOV) is a versatile concept for offshore wind farm operations and maintenance. The MSOV concept is a collaboration across NOV's Marine and Construction business unit.
To introduce the concept, an MSOV design was developed based on GustoMSC's Enhydra MSOV design. The vessel design offers a flexible deck layout to integrate mission equipment from its Lifting and Handling group and Remacut. At 140 m in length, the Enhydra MSOV's larger design allows for additional capabilities by integrating additional modular equipment. Featuring Remacut cable-lay equipment, the vessel is designed for cable repair and change-out, subsea inspection and intervention, and mooring installation for floating wind farms.
