Not only are we committed to leading the industry in the quality of our crew transfer vessels, we are always looking for ways to develop new technologies to make the entire industry more sustainable. At CWind, we believe we must take responsibility for lowering our environmental impact – which is exactly why we’ve built and launched the CWind Pioneer: the world’s first Hybrid SES.
The CWind Pioneer is supported with cutting-edge technology to create a transfer vessel that is not only safer and faster than the competition, but is the most environmentally-friendly it’s ever been. By investing heavily in carbon-reduction initiatives, we have built a vessel truly fit for the offshore wind industry. So now your projects can be greener and more sustainable from start to finish. We’re excited to be bringing such a revolutionary vessel to market, knowing this is just the start of CWind’s vessel innovations!
Our wind farm crew transfer boats and specially designed to deal with even the toughest weather conditions, ensuring that all transfers are completed efficiently and with safety as a priority. This means that your business costs remain low, ensuring that deliveries to site are being made on time, whilst crews have peace of mind knowing that their crew transfer vessel service is trusted and puts their needs first!
At CWind, we know and understand that getting the right wind farm boat hire is critical to offshore construction and maintenance project performance, which is why we offer reliability and speed with every journey.
State-of-the-art wind farm crew transfer boats can provide valuable logistical support for your offshore project – delivering fresh, rather than fatigued, personnel to your site and maximising their work window. This ensures that works can be carried out faster and at a higher quality, offering more value than simple transportation from one location to another.
Crew comfort is at the forefront of our vessel designs, meaning our saloons are well ventilated and fully heated, and supplied with at least a microwave, water boiler and fridge as standard. In addition, crew transfer vessels have full audio and PA systems, can offer Wi-Fi if required, and many of our vessels have televisions. There is ample storage for kit bags and wet zones for hanging and drying damp clothing.
We provide crew transfer vessels which are coded by the Maritime Coastguard Agency to Category 1 or 2, allowing them to operate up to 150nm and 60nm from a safe haven respectively. All of the safety equipment required by code is carried on board and serviced to schedule. Our fleet carries full commercial insurance and operate CCTV for safety and security – giving you, and your technicians, further peace of mind!
