The offshore wind industry often needs versatile vessels that can easily be refitted and reconfigured to perform a range of different duties, from transporting people to carrying heavy equipment. Using vacuum resin infusion and composites from DIAB, CTruk Boats lead the way in meeting this requirement with an innovative approach using a movable deckhouse structure.
Lighter on the surface – and the wallet
“Modern, advanced composite materials, such as Divinycell, give a strong and robust structure, reduce the overall weight by up to 40% and offer significant cost savings in production, operation and maintenance”, says Andy White, CTruk CEO. “The use of vacuum resin infusion composite also gives our boats a smoother, more hydrodynamic shape under water compared to aluminium boats”.
MPC22 – a truly versatile workhorse
CTruk’s newest vessel, the MPC22, was launched at the Seawork International exhibition in June 2015. The boat was conceived with Round 3 offshore wind parks in mind and is designed to safely deal with rougher seas, longer transits and tougher assignments whilst not neglecting the comfort of passengers and crew
