Veka Delivery for Royal Wagenborg Marks Wind Debut

Royal Wagenborg has taken delivery of the first high speed Veka Catamaran for the offshore wind farm industry. The catamaran will supply remote wind farms in the North Sea with crew, equipment and various supplies. Later this week Veka will launch a second catamaran for a shakedown cruise, and it will not be long before this catamaran will also be servicing one of the offshore wind farms.

With the completion of these powerful ‘support vessels’, Veka Group strikes a new path – the offshore wind farm market. Last year, Veka collaborated with BMT Nigel Gee, a leading engineer with a global presence in the offshore industry. With the development of a series of powerful catamarans, Veka caters to a strong demand in the market of fast and safe transport of personnel, technicians and equipment to and from offshore wind farms. The strong lightweight aluminium construction provides safety and a top speed of 27 nm/h, carrying a total of twelve passengers, three crew members and three 10ft containers.
