Manor Renewable Energy has completed the design phase and tank testing of a new 40-metre technician support vessel due for construction in 2019.
The design features individual cabins for eight crew members and 20 offshore technicians.
The vessel will have the ability to push up against the transition piece due to an engineered piston arrangement minimising the impact and tank tests have shown it has the capabilities to increase the standard 1.5-metre significant wave height by over 40 per cent.
The vessel will be designed by Walker Marine Design and constructed at Manor’s own shipyard in Portland, Dorset.
