Offshore Supply Vessels and Crew Boats for Wind Farms

Reliable, powerful mtu propulsion systems for wind farm service ships combine high fuel economy with reduced emissions, making them ideal for environmentally friendly operations.

Transporting personnel, spare parts, consumables and other supplies to wind farms requires ships that are absolutely reliable  – even in the rough waters of the North Sea, where massive swells and harsh weather are common occurrences. mtu drive systems ensure that wind farm service vessels and crew boats are equipped for such conditions.  

mtu systems are compact, robust, reliable, economical and maintenance-friendly, not to mention exceptionally powerful and quiet. With mtu on board, supply vessels and crew boats can be operated confidently. As a system provider, we can also offer onboard power generators and ship automation systems that are ideal for your operation and perfectly aligned with our reliable diesel and gas engines.
