Ad Hoc Marine Designs is championing the feasibility of its Typhoon Class Swath design as the best suited windfarm vessel to meet significant wave height requirements for future rounds of offshore windfarms.

The company has recently released details of its new Walk to Work (W2W) Swath CTV capable of servicing the next generation of Round 3 windfarms, giving operators a “better alternative” to ordering larger vessels.

“The next round of windfarms and the future vessel requirements for higher wave height and being longer at sea is due to windfarms being placed further out to sea,” said John Kecsmar, naval architect, Ad Hoc Marine Designs.

“Our Typhoon Class Swath design is the best one on the market to meet these requirements going forward.”

Kecsmar refutes the view that Swath designs have more resistance at higher speeds, increasing fuel consumption and operating costs for operators. Existing CTV designs are comparable.
