CWind, a leading provider of services to the offshore wind industry, has announced today that Transmission Capital Services (TCS) has chartered one of CWind’s Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) on a five-year contract to support works at several of their offshore substations in the United Kingdom.
CWind is using one of its MPC19 resin infused composite catamarans to provide the crew transfer services. In February this year, CWind had announced that it had won a 20-year contract from TC Westermost Rough OFTO Limited, one of the OFTOs managed by TCS, to maintain the secondary mechanical and electrical systems of both the offshore and onshore substations at the Westermost Rough project. The earlier contract covered all routine inspection, diagnostics and planned maintenance work, as well as a first response service and offshore transport.
Lee Andrews, Managing Director CWind, was pleased with the contract win, stating, “We’re very pleased to have won this contract so soon after commencing work for TC Westermost Rough OFTO Limited. It is a confirmation of the quality of the service we provide and a reflection of the commitment of our teams. Low operational costs, given their excellent fuel efficiency and comparatively low day rates, make our MPC19 catamarans the perfect vessel for this sort of contract.”
Dominik Adamus, Senior Commercial Manager at Transmission Investment commented, “The selection process was made easier by the obvious cost-efficiency benefits of the CWind fleet and the existing relationship at the TC Westermost Rough OFTO. We look forward to working with CWind on this engagement.”
