Brave Tern

Heavy Maintenance and Construction

4C Offshore | Brave Tern
Brave Tern is a self-elevating and self-propelled jack-up offshore wind turbine installation vessel. Brave Tern was launched in 2012 prior to its delivery later that year. The vessel is a GustoMSC NG-9000C-HPE design with four 92m legs. Since its delivery, Brave Tern has worked regularly in the offshore wind market.

Originally, the vessel could typically carry 8 x 3.6 MW or 4 x 6.0 MW offshore wind turbines or three jacket foundations suitable for 40m water depth. Now, the vessel's WTG capacity (typical) is 5 x 8MW or 4 x 10MW or 3 x 12MW.
