Refurbing Crew Transfer Vessels

Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) Ltd have purchased Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV's), the MPI Cervantes and MPI Cardenio from Offshore Support Vessels BV for an undisclosed sum.

The 17 metre vessels, designed and built by South Boats in 2011/12, will be transported from Teesside to Portland to be fully reconditioned by MRE.

MRE Managing Director, Eric Briar commented, ‘We have the capability at our Portland facility to build or refurb several vessels at a time. When these vessels were put up for sale we immediately saw the potential. In just over eight weeks, once we strip them both down, totally re-engine and increase the overall length by 3 metres we will basically own two brand new vessels”.

In 2017 MRE built the Manor Venture, which is one of the largest CTVs currently operating within the offshore renewables market. Towards the end of April they will commence the build of her sister vessel, to be delivered in 2020.

MRE are on stand Q56
