Umoe Rapid Debuts for Statoil

Umoe Rapid has completed its first charter at world’s first floating wind farm, the 30MW Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, and at the 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm for Statoil.

The newbuild high-performance crew transfer vessel (CTV) was used for cargo and crew transfer. After Umoe Firmus, Umoe Rapid is the second Wavecraft CTV from Umoe Mandal AS that has carried out a charter for Statoil at the Hywind offshore wind farm.

Umoe Rapid was delivered in May 2017 and is currently under commercial and operational management by World Marine Offshore.

The 30MW Hywind Scotland Pilot Park comprises five Siemens 6MW turbines mounted on SPAR-type floating foundations.

The Dudgeon offshore wind farm comprises 67 Siemens 6MW wind turbines. Statoil is developing and will operate the wind farm following its full commissioning later this year.
