Wind Farm Support

As the demand for alternative energy sources increases, particularly in the area of wind power, so will the need for vessels designed to support the requirements of wind farms.

SUDA has designed several liftboats which are well suited for wind farm support. Our designs are proven and have the highest deadweight to lightship ratio in the industry. This capacity can easily be parlayed into carrying turbines, etc.

All SUDA designs that meet the size criteria are or can be classed to meet the latest ABS WIND Installation Maintenance and Repair (Wind IMR) notation.

Our SUDA 300-L3 is the smallest vessel ever to receive this notation.

 

 


In response to inquiries from the industry, we have developed a new line of WTIVs. After much consultation with owners, operators, as well as potential end users, these vessels are designed to be optimal for wind farm installation, support and maintenance.
