An overview

The ship's design of the Windcat CTVs in sombination 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 imroves 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 that 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 technicans to take on and take off the safety and working equipment. Moreover, there is also enough space to store the working clothes, devices, toolsand equipments. 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.

Das Windcat MK 3.2 RW Design ist eine Serie von 19-Meter Schiffen mit zusätzlicher Fläche auf dem Vordeck unter Beibehaltung desselben komfortablen Passagierbereichs der Vorgänger-Schiffe. Durch das erhöhte Brückendeck ist es möglich, größere Ladungen z. B. Standard 10-Fuß-Container zu transportieren.

Durch eine Optimierung des bisherigen Schiffsdesigns konnte der Treibstoffverbrauch signifikant reduziert werden (ca. 20-30%) bei weiterhin gleicher Service- Geschwindigkeit und hohem Anpressdruck. Eine weitere Ersparnis kann zusätzlich durch das Windgrip System ermöglich werden.
