Offshore wind farms grow. Turbines are being installed in Northern Europe at a rapid rate, with the UK in the forefront and Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark picking up speed.
The need for service boats is growing, too. Wind farms have to be serviced during their construction, operation and maintenance phases, which places very specific demands on service boats.
One service provider, Windcat Workboats, have installed Volvo Penta D16 marine diesel engines in 90% of its vessels to enjoy more power, better manoeuvrability, higher fuel efficiency and excellent service and support.
