Ocean Installer and Vard are entering into a partnership to develop turbine installation vessels for offshore wind. The vessel will be able to install wind turbine components above 1000 tonnes more than 150 metres above sea level.
Vard has experience in design and construction of complex offshore construction vessels and special purpose ships. To lead this initiative, Ocean Installer has recruited several key people from the sector. These include Even Larsen, former CEO of Fred Olsen Ocean, and Olav Hetland, former Senior Vice President for offshore wind power at Statkraft.
