The Hybrid SES offers a step change in operational capability, performance and efficiency for a CTV operating in support of offshore wind farm O&M and construction activities. With a high crew transfer wave height capability, it presents a significant increase in operational days offshore, whilst the hybrid propulsion system results in significant reductions in fuel consumption and the associated CO2 emissions. The highly innovative surface effect hull form and associated heave compensation, ensures a high degree of comfort for all passengers and crew.
CWind is committed to investing in innovation and new technology, in partnership with ESNA, to create a design for the future of CTVs.
The hybrid surface effect ship (SES) CTV has many advantages over traditional CTVs including:
> Reduced emissions
> Significant fuel savings
> Boosted battery performance
> Sustainable green technology for the future
