Coastwise Offshore Services and Next Generation Shipyards have signed the second contract for building of a new, energy-efficient and fuel-saving aluminium vessel for the offshore wind-industry
The design provides the stability of a traditional catamaran and the speed and fuel efficiency of a monohull.
This combination is reflected in the name under which the new type of vessel is put onto the market: 30 Pax Monomaran Crewtender – Endurance class NG2727.
The vessel will be delivered to Coastwise mid 2022 and sail under the name of COS Mate. The aluminium vessel is over 27 meters long, provides ample and comfortable room for 30 passengers and can carry a load of 15 to 22 tons.
It will be fitted with a deck crane. Its cruising speed is 27 knots. The design is innovative and sustainable, which means that Next Generation Shipyards presents a concept which appeals to the market and symbolizes the role which the Groningen region wishes to play in the field of energy transition and renewable energy.
Once the vessels have been completed, Coastwise Offshore Services will outsource the commercial management of the Monomaran Crewtender to SeaZip Offshore Service in Harlingen.
