Bibby Wavemaster 1, Bibby Marine Services’ service operation vessel (SOV), has completed her sea trials in the Black Sea and is getting ready to set sail to the Galloper offshore wind farm in the UK.  

James Fisher Marine Services, the main offshore marine services contractor for the Galloper project, chartered the Bibby WaveMaster 1 to support commissioning works on the 336MW wind farm.

The three-month charter is expected to start this autumn with options to extend.

The SOV, registered in the UK, was built by Damen Shipyards.

Damen launched the vessel at its Galati shipyard in Romania on 24 March. This is the first of Damen’s purpose-built SOVs with walk-to-work (W2W) capability.

Bibby Marine Services will take delivery of the vessel in August.
