Wind turbine vessel from Tuco

Wind turbine vessel from Tuco

The newest vessel in Tuco Marine Group's series of fast workboats, ProZero series, is a 13 meter long boat that will be used to service offshore wind farms. The design is targeting the work function of service and to transport people out to the wind farms.

The boat is designed to be lifted up and down from a larger mother ship with a David-system, and the boat can be equipped with systems of hooks after the owner's desire.

With the new boat, Tuco Marine goes directly after the third round of offshore installations, which takes place in deep water. These wind farms are located so far from land that daily transport to and from the coast is not possible, and technicians must be accommodated in larger mother ships or residential platforms. It requires a stable support vessel capable of carrying crew from residential unit to and from the installations.

The new vessel is constructed of carbon fiber, which entails a low weight. The low weight increases partly the boat's fuel efficiency and partly makes it possible to connect the boat to ships that are not able to handle heavier follow ships.
