first_imgzoom The latest offshore wind support vessel to leave the CTruk production line in Essex made straight for Southampton was officially named yesterday at annual commercial marine exhibition and forum, Seawork.Scott’s wife Michelle names the vessel, with Scott Wharton and CTruk MD Ben SimpsonOcean Warrior, a brand new 18.5m advanced composite twin-hull CTruk 20T MPC, is the second for owner Scott Wharton of Ocean Transit Services. He signed the agreement for his first workboat, a 20T under the CWind boat share scheme named CWind Challenger, at Seawork last year.“In the longer term we want to be operating several wind farm boats so that we are well placed to meet future demand for offshore wind farm construction and O&M both in the UK and Europe. This is a very exciting start for us and we are keen to strengthen our relationships with both CWind and CTruk as we move forward,” said Scott.Commenting on the new features on Ocean Warrior he continued, “The increased speed and bollard pull from the Volvo D13 engines and more powerful FF45 Rolls-Royce waterjets will be invaluable in providing the level of service we’re aiming for. We just can’t wait to get the vessel out to work!”This workboat is the second CTruk 20T MPC designed and built to Bureau Veritas (BV) | HULL • MACH Wind Farms Service Ship – S1 classification rules. Ocean Warrior also meets UK flag (MCA) MGN280 requirements for Category 1.Working in partnership with CWind, Ocean Warrior will return to CTruk’s base in Brightlingsea after Seawork to prepare for deployment to Germany.
