CWind Fulmar 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 CWind Fulmar, boasts mixed-flow stainless-steel Rolls-Royce waterjets for a targeted 25% increased bollard pull. Coupled with the RR jets’ efficiencies, the optimised hull form improves the sea-keeping ability of the vessel while maintaining service speed, and boosts the already notable fuel efficiency of these composite craft.
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 workboat.
