Next-Generation Naval Architecture
Chartwell Marine (Chartwell), pioneer of sustainable next-generation naval architecture, is introducing its expanded range of offshore energy support vessel (OESV) designs ahead of Seawork 2022 this week.
The new design range, spanning classes A to D, applies Chartwell’s proven formula of performance and excellence in OESV design to accommodate the growing variety and complexity of offshore energy requirements. Demand for peak operational performance and improved sustainability is greater than ever, with increasing focus towards alternative fuels and emissions reduction technologies to control the sector’s carbon profile.
Andy Page, Director and Naval Architect at Chartwell Marine, said “The offshore wind industry isn’t static – wind farms continue to evolve, and the offshore support sector needs to match that diversity and variability.
There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all' solution that can accommodate the scope of these requirements; our developed design range offers vessel operators the boats they need to get the job done right, and wind farm managers the security of a safe, efficient, and built-to-spec marine support infrastructure for their assets.
This core range is complemented by the BARTech 30 CTV developed in partnership wth BAR Technologies to expand the scope of options for the OESV sector. Meanwhile Chartwell’s roster of bespoke projects, such as the remotely operated Zelim Survivor rescue craft, address a broader remit of challenges for the offshore energy sector at large. We’re looking forward to showcasing some of these designs throughout the week at Seawork.”
