Kongsbergs wind turbine installation vessel technology chosen by COSCOKongsberg Maritime has signed contracts totalling EUR 49m with the Chinese shipbuilder COSCO Shipping (Qidong) Offshore for its turbine installation vessel (WTIV) technology. The agreement will see Kongsberg Maritime (KM) supply technology packages for two new NG-20000X WTIVs, which COSCO is constructing for the Denmark-based service provider Cadeler.
 
Monitoring and control of the KM components will be handled by a K-Chief marine automation system. Energy control functionalities will optimise energy efficiency of the vessels. The vessels will also include technology for the regeneration of power from the jacking system and cranes. KM has also included its onboard advisory system, EcoAdvisor, and a condition-based monitoring system to extend maintenance intervals and detect any anomalies in the rotating equipment. The first of the new WTIVs is expected to be delivered before the end of Q3 2024. The second is expected by Q1 2025.
