In a pioneering move towards sustainable maritime operations, Damen Shipyards has introduced a novel concept for offshore charging.

The company proposes a fully electric crew transfer vessel (CTV) that connects to a charger installed on a Commissioning Service Operations Vessel (CSOV).

This innovative solution allows for the immediate investment in sustainable technology, even before the widespread distribution of offshore charging infrastructure is in place.

By enabling offshore charging, Damen aims to significantly reduce emissions and promote sustainability within the offshore wind energy market.


This advancement underscores Damen Shipyards' commitment to supporting the transition to cleaner energy and enhancing the environmental performance of maritime operations.
