Our Offshore Wind Fleet
The most recent acquisition, mega jack-up vessel, is named Boreas After the Greek god of the northern wind (in Greek: "the Northern"). The name Boreas fits well with a vessel that will operate fully dedicated to the offshore wind industry.
A major step was taken in the modification of Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel Aeolus. The new 1,600 tonnes crane was successfully installed onboard, making the vessel ready to handle the latest generation of foundations and turbines.
OIV MPI Adventure
was put into service in 2011 as the next generation of offshore installation and maintenance vessel. This makes the MPI Adventure suitable for the transport, lifting and installation of foundations and wind turbines.
OIV MPI Resolution
is the world’s first purpose-built vessel for installing offshore wind turbines, foundations and transitions pieces. The vessel is a unique combination of tested technologies applied in innovative ways for the offshore wind O&M market.
The cable laying vessel that is currently under construction in Norway now goes by the name Calypso. The name has several connections with water. First, Calypso was a sea goddess, daughter of Atlas. Second the iconic ship of the late French marine explorer Jacques Cousteau was also named Calypso..
has a dead weight of 8,500 tonnes, a length of 120 metres, a beam of 28 metres and a DP-2 system (dynamic positioning). It is equipped with a cable carousel with a capacity of more than 5,000 tonnes and an offshore crane that will enable it to lay heavy and long export cables. On board 90 people can be accommodated.
Heavy lift vessel Svanen successfully installed more than 500 foundations and complements our installation capabilities..
