Tidal Transit Takes Over ‘Umoe Firmus’

The WaveCraft Surface Effect Ship Umoe Firmus arrived in the river harbour at the Port of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk today.

Following extensive upgrades and testing, the vessel was handed over to the Tidal Transit crew, who sailed directly from Mandal to Yarmouth.

Statkraft has chartered Umoe Firmus to support its O&M operations at the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm. Before handing the vessel over to Statkraft, Tidal Transit is hosting a short series of demonstration trips from Great Yarmouth for key players in the industry.

Tidal Transit Commercial Director Leo Hambro said: “The level of interest we have had to arrange trials and the oversubscribed demonstration trip indicates that we are not the only people who believe that the WaveCraft is a potential game changer. We are looking forward to showing off Umoe Firmus’ capabilities in the North Sea.”

The vessel was built by Norwegian shipbuilder Umoe Mandal.
