An overview

The ship's design of the Windcat CTVs, in combination with the self-developed fender, enables an effective, safe and easy access system. The general design of the fender is used on every ship but varies in size and energy absorption capability depending on the ship's size and propulsion system. Several windpark projects already proved that the shape and material of the fender increased the grip which in fact improves the transfer's safety. Due to the design of the fender system, stocked fenders can be easily replaced. For the development and construction of all ships in our fleet, which are especially designed for the offshore industry, the special operational concerns of this sector had been considered.

The passenger area offers enough space for the technicians to take on and off the safety and working equipment. Moreover, there is also enough space to store the working clothes, devices, tools and equipment. In total, the passenger area enables an overall comfortable transfer while offering a nice view and enough sunlight. According to our customer's wishes and needs, individual adjustments on the CTV can be made to provide the most optimised solution for your specific projects.
