Iceni Orders Fourth South Boats 23m CTV

Iceni Marine Services has ordered the fourth South Boats IOW 23m offshore wind crew transfer vessel (CTV) from South Boats IOW and Alicat Workboats.

Along with an extended superstructure, the vessel will feature twin MAN V12-1400 main engines coupled Servogear HD295 reduction ‘V’ drive gearboxes driving a Servogear Ecoflow Propulsor system with 1225mm CPP propellers for speeds in excess of 30 knots, efficient cruising speeds coupled to high bollard pull capability.

Richard Thurlow of Iceni Marine Services Ltd.: “Taking up this option, extending the superstructure and selecting CPP propulsion is a natural expansion of our vessel development and build programme to support the growth of offshore wind construction and operations.”

The vessel will be built at Alicat Workboats in Great Yarmouth and is due to completion in early 2017.
