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

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
