Njord Offshore Expands Its CTV Fleet with Three New Vessels
Njord Offshore will add a 26m Damen 2610 Twin Axe crew transfer vessel (CTV) to its fleet this month, the company informed today.
The new CTV, named Njord Alpha, will bring additional load lugging capability and excellent ride comfort for the further offshore wind farms.
Njord Offshore worked with Damen to create an optimised vessel to suit its needs, making minor changes to the standard design to improve comfort, efficiency and safety.
Improvements from the standard TwinAxe design include:
• Increased passenger window size (50% increase) for high viz
• Changed railings for increased foredeck craning area
In addition, Njord Offshore recently signed to operate another two 26m controllable pitch propeller (CPP) CTVs, which have been designed in cooperation with BMT Nigel Gee and will be built by Strategic Marine. These two vessels will be classed to DNV’s Windfarm Service 1 notation.
