SMST to deliver mission equipment for Rem Energy

In: Vessels
SMST, located in Drachten (The Netherlands) has secured a contract to deliver mission equipment for the Construction Service Vessel (CSV), Rem Energy, which is being built by Green Yard Kleven in Ulsteinvik for Rem Offshore AS. The vessel has been ordered to support maintenance operations on various offshore wind farms in Germany.

SMST will deliver a modular system package consisting of an Access & Cargo Tower with elevator and motion compensated gangway and a 3D motion compensated crane. The SMST mission equipment helps to transfer Rem’s maintenance personnel and cargo to the offshore wind turbines.

“By delivering their walk-to-work equipment to Rem Energy, SMST assures a thorough and proven execution of the vessel’s design principle”,
says Ronny Pål Kvalsvik, Technical & Purchasing Manager at Rem Offshore AS, “Future requirements regarding the safety of people and goods are secured.”  

The vessel, designed by Havyard Design & Solutions AS, will serve a five year contract for Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy in the
Global Tech 1 offshore wind farm. To increase the operational flexibility of the vessel, SMST’s motion compensated gangway can operate on both starboard and portside. The landing height systems of the Access & Cargo Tower provides access to platforms up to 12m above sea level.

“With this maximum flexibility can be achieved in the current project, but also in future offshore wind farms of Siemens Gamesa in the North Sea and Baltic Sea”,
says Jelle Dijk, Sales Manager at SMST.

“Our newest type of rental gangway, the so-called Telescopic Access Bridge L-Series, is successfully operating on board the Rem Inspector since November 2020”,
explains Jelle Dijk, “This vessel will perform the role as a frontrunner to the newbuild, executing its windfarm maintenance operations. We are very pleased with our close cooperation with Rem Offshore AS and will proudly support them in current and future projects.”
