CWind, a leading provider of project services and Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) to the offshore wind industry, and part of the Global Marine Group (GMG), has completed the sale of their CTV, Endeavour, to Wood Marine, a port services operator based in Suffolk.
The sale of Endeavour, an 18.5m catamaran with a maximum speed of 27kts, is part of CWind’s strategic plan to remodel its CTV fleet and enables CWind to pursue new vessels, including the world’s first Hybrid SES CTV, which is currently under construction and will join the CWind fleet in February 2021.
Joshua Brennan, Operations Director at CWind said: “We continuously review the composition of our fleet of over 20 CTVs, to actively divest tonnage and upgrade our fleet to suit market requirements. The sale of Endeavour means we can focus on introducing new vessels to our fleet as part of our commitment to lower emissions and provide comfortable, cost-effective CTVs for our customers.”
Endeavour will join Wood Marine’s two other multipurpose workboats, providing port services including crew and stores transfers, hydrographic surveying, ATV support and dive support.
Andrew Wood, Managing Director at Wood Marine said: “We’re pleased to welcome Endeavour to our fleet, providing us with a cost-effective crew and stores transfer solution with greater deck capacity for stores and surveying activities, with a large cabin for crew transit. With the addition of the Endeavour, we can service multiple vessels simultaneously to support all of our diverse customers’ needs.”
CWind, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, successfully completed more than 43,000 crew transfers in 2020.
