Two of the Incat Crowther designed CTVs will be constructed at St. Johns Shipyard in Palatka, FL and one will be built at Gulf Craft in Franklin, LA. The CTVs are scheduled to be delivered in 2023 and will go immediately into service for GE Renewables.

The Windea CTV fleet is owned and operated by MidOcean Wind and Hornblower Wind, with technical and operational support from Windea Offshore shareholder Ems Maritime Offshore GmbH, which operates a fleet of CTVs in the European market.
