Apr 18, 2013– Great Yarmouth, UK (Techreleased) – Gardline Environmental’s Coastal Services Division will be supplying 4 x 20metre Crew transfer vessels (CTVs) for the contract.
Centrica is one of the leading offshore wind farm developers in the world and Gardline, with its fleet of specialist turbine transfer vessels has been contracted to transfer personnel and equipment, out into the field.
The port of operation will be Grimsby dock which has just had a major investment to the dock gates to allow access for larger and more capable vessels to operate in the area.
The larger CTVs will save time on transiting, to and from site, thus enabling a longer working period out in the field.
Gardline currently owns and operates 12 CTVs with three more in production, and all being in service over the next few months.
The Coastal Services division of Gardline Environmental Ltd is one of the offshore Renewables industry’s leading suppliers of support vessels for wind turbine and offshore installation as well as providing specialist crew training, management and operations.
Michael Martins Head of Coastal services.
“We are very pleased to be working with Centrica in the development of their offshore wind capability This is another milestone contract award for Coastal Services in-line with our development strategy of being CTV vessel supplier of first choice to the growing offshore renewable market”
