Bold Tern

Heavy Maintenance and Construction

Vessel image
Gusto MCS designed the Bold Tern with customisation by Fred. Olsen Windcarrier. The vessel has 800 ton “wrap around the leg” cranes which were also designed by Gusto MSC, as well as continuous type jacking systems. The vessel has DP2-class type dynamic positioning system and is fitted with a Voith Schneider propulsion system.

Bold Tern had a typical carrying capacity of 8 x 3.6 MW or 4 x 6.0 MW turbines or three jacket foundations suitable for 40m water depth but following upgrading in 2016, this is now four complete ‘multi MW’ turbines with full towers throughout the year in water depths of up to 55m – up to 60m in the summer.

To enable direct transfer of personnel to a turbine, Bold Tern has a gangway which can be deployed.
