CWind Adventure

A versatile and cost effective MPC 19

Overview

Built in 2013, the CWind Adventure is part of CWind’s fleet of proven MPC 19 resin-infused composite vessels. To date, these vessels have been employed at more than 20 offshore wind farms in the UK and Germany.

The vessel uses a moveable wheelhouse and modular three-section pod system enabling her to perform multiple functions including crew transfer, refuelling (16t fuel capacity), survey with moon pool attachment, dive support and full O&M support. The modular pod design offers exciting operational flexibility as well as enhanced deck space options.

Features include fully air-conditioned, personalised suspension seating for passengers and crew, lockers and shelving for technician bags, microwave, fridge, hot water, and changing area.

CWind Adventure, launched in April 2013, completed its first 24 months in service with just 11 hours’ total down time. She was the first of CWind’s vessel to commence work for Siemens at Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm. In her first year of service alone, she travelled 150,000 miles and completed more than 15,500 transfers.
