CWind Endurance

A SWATH 20 designed to cut through the waves rather than ride over them

Overview

CWind Endurance is part of CWind’s fleet of proven resin-infused composite vessels. The vessel uses a moveable wheelhouse and modular pod system enabling her to perform multiple functions including crew transfer, dive support, cargo carrying and O&M support.

The use of water jets is the main difference on the newer SWATH work boat. Its Rolls-Royce Kamewa FF41 jets provide increased manoeuvrability and responsiveness to sea conditions when approaching the turbine transition piece.

The SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) is designed for solid and stable handling, cutting through the waves rather than riding over them, dramatically improving transit comfort even in rough seas. Motions are approximately a quarter of those of conventional catamarans, significantly increasing the current wave height limits for technician transfer. And tests have also shown that the force needed to hold her against the turbine’s transition piece is a quarter of that needed by a conventional work boat.
