REM EnergySiemens Gamesa's new Service Operations Vessel (SOV) named REM Energy is technically ready to operate emission free thanks to fuel cells and battery technology. The vessel is ready for the addition of a 12MW battery which would reduce energy consumption during operation. The REM Energy is also capable to run emissions free on green hydrogen or with batteries and offshore charging.
 
Until a green hydrogen economy is established in Germany, the ship will be conventionally powered by diesel generators. The REM Energy is almost 90m long and almost 20m wide. It will be the workplace and living quarters for up to 75 offshore service technicians and 24 crew members. The ship has a gangway that stabilises the wave movements and enables the technicians to safely transfer from the ship to the offshore wind turbine. To make the stay at sea as pleasant as possible, there is a fitness room, a cinema and a gaming room on board. The offshore service technicians will live on board and work in shifts. The Siemens Gamesa crew will rotate every 14 days, while the REM Energy itself is able to operate at sea for a total of more than a month before having to return to port again. The ship was delivered from the Norwegian shipyard Green Yard Kleven on December 3, 2021 and was christened there in mid-November. Siemens Gamesa has chartered the REM Energy for 4 years, and will be operated by the shipping company REM Energy AS. The home port for the service operations will be Bremerhaven. The REM Energy will be deployed in the offshore wind parks Global Tech 1 and Trianel Borkum West.
