CTV (Crew Transport Vessel)
FRS Offshore offers Crew Transfer Vessels in cooperation with WindCat Workboats. WindCat Workboats is Europe's leading provider of specialist crew transfer vessels to the offshore windpower industry.
FRS Windcat Offshore Logistics (FWOL) combines the long experience and considerable know-how of two companies which are well known in the shipping world: the FRS Group and Windcat Workboats. With over four years of experience in the offshore wind industry, FWOL has successfully completed thousands of safe transfers to wind turbines.
FWOL provides tailor-made logistics concepts for each project according to its individual requirements. Furthermore, FWOL is a reliable partner for crew transfer services, employing efficient and continuously upgraded vessels. This emphasis on new technology has, for example, already led to the reduction of typical hourly fuel consumption to only 200 litres while maintaining a service speed of 25 knots. The fitting of catalytic converters for the reduction of NOx emissions further underscores the vessels' pioneering position with respect to environmental friendliness.
The Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) Windcat 28, Windcat 34 and Windcat 35 are used for daily transfers to the turbines of various offshore wind farms in the German sectors of North and Baltic Seas. A new vessel, Windcat 40, is currently under construction
