New additions to enable year-round operation

High Speed Transfers (HST), the crew transfer vessel (CTV) operator supporting offshore wind energy and oil and gas industries worldwide, has confirmed its order of two BARTech 30 CTVs.

HST’s order will ensure that the business is able to continue to provide the highest standards of comfort for passengers during voyages to wind farms even in regions that typically see higher sea states such as the US. The two BARTech 30 vessels will offer HST the flexibility to operate year-round, benefiting from a significant reduction in vertical acceleration to ensure optimal performance. The proven Chartwell 24 vessel formula will be further enhanced with BAR Technologies’ FOSS, offering improvements in seakeeping and boosting efficiency.

With decarbonising the vessel supply chain becoming a key imperative for wind farm owners and operators, BAR Technologies’ CTV is set to provide HST with fuel – and therefore emissions – savings of up to 30%.

Tom Nevin, CEO, High Speed Transfers, said: “Offshore wind owners and operators have shown a real appetite for efficient, low-carbon vessel platforms. It is exciting to work with vessel designers such as BAR Technologies and Chartwell Marine who understand what the industry needs and have the expertise to deliver next-generation designs without overcomplicating the vessels. BAR Technologies’ FOSS is fast becoming a ‘must have’ and we are keen to demonstrate the capabilities of our new vessels to the market.”
