To meet the needs of today’s offshore wind industry, we have designed the next generation of Service Operation Vessels with an advanced level of integration and autonomy to achieve the highest levels of safety, reliability and workability from a low cost base.
- Safe and step-less transfers
- High comfort
- Guaranteed workability
- Cost efficient
The vessels feature a fully integrated service package with provisions for one motion compensated gangway, one active heave or motion compensated crane, daughter craft and step-less boat landing to allow for effective operations. Moreover, ample space is available for warehousing, workshops, office spaces with view on operations and relaxation areas.
IHC is leading the way in the vessels market by enabling high levels of autonomous operations in their vessels. The SOV will be capable of execute mission assignments in offshore wind farms independently; under the watchful eye of a human supervisor.
Key focus points in the development of this vessel are: crew and passenger safety; a comfortable living and working environment; and vessel efficiency in terms of workflow and propulsion systems, and a high level of autonomy.
