Ulstein Contracted by Cyan Renewables to Design Floating Foundation Installation Vessels
Singapore-headquartered Cyan Renewables has contracted Ulstein Design & Solutions BV as the designer of a series of new floating foundation installation vessels (FFIV) dedicated to offshore wind. With an increasing need for heavy lift installation vessels, these new FFIVs are designed to fill the gap.The vessels will enable Cyan to support the offshore wind industry in meeting its global ambitions.
The new FFIVs will feature adequate deck space and crane capacity to meet developments in foundation design, including monopiles and jackets.
“With their strong track record in heavy lift vessel design and a good understanding of the market constraints and requirements, Ulstein is the preferred partner to design our new vessels”, says Torgeir E. Ramstad, Cyan’s Managing Director FFIV Division.
“Cyan Renewables will be a leading global vessel provider to offshore wind by partnering with Developers and EPCI and T&I contractors based on future-proof vessels in all categories.”
“Back in time, we predicted a lack of foundation installation vessels and as developments go fast, our R&D focus has been on future-oriented FIV designs to suit the exponential growth of offshore wind.
