Siemens Gamesa testing Rem newbuild
Rem Offshore’s newbuild Construction Service Vessel (CSV), Rem Energy, has started a charter sea trial for Siemens Gamesa in the German North Sea.
The vessel is deployed at the 400 MW Global Tech I wind farm located 140 kilometres from Emden in the German Exclusive Economic Zone.
Once the sea trials are completed, Siemens Gamesa will use Rem Energy to perform maintenance on various wind farms offshore Germany.
Rem Energy was built at Green Yard Kleven in Ulsteinvik, Norway, and is tailormade for operations on offshore wind installations.
The hybrid vessel is designed by Havyard Design & Solutions AS and is of the HAVYARD 833 CSV type.
The 90-metre CSV is equipped with an SMST walk-to-work gangway and three cranes, and can provide accommodation for up to 99 persons.
Rem Energy also features a weather deck and an automated warehouse below deck for spare parts and goods.
