NAVA Launches new CTV design

by Sue Allen in Vessels 23/01/2020 Sue Allen

NAVA Ship Design Office has developed a new CTV design, specifically targeting the Baltic offshore wind market.

The vessel is an aluminium catamaran with the capacity to carry up to 12 passengers and four crew. It will be powered by two MTU 12 V 2000 engines with 1080 kW each, driving fixed pitched propellers delivering speeds up to 25 knots. The vessel will be 22m loa and 8.5m in beam and have DNV GL 1A HSLC R2 class notation. The foredeck will be 30m2 with a capacity for 10 tons of cargo.

Offshore wind is well established in the Baltic Sea and the first offshore wind farms in Poland could see construction start around 2023-2024. Last year, the Polish Ministry of Energy released a revised draft of the Polish Energy Plan (PEP) 2040, with updated energy forecasts. Offshore wind capacity to 2040 has been revised down, from 10 GW to 8 GW (translating to 3.8 GW by 2030, instead of 5 GW). This is due to an increased contribution from onshore wind.
