Alewijnse Kits Out Windcat Sisters

Dutch electrical system integrator Alewijnse Marine System is currently undertaking electrical outfitting on two crew transfer vessels (CTVs) being built for Windcat Workboats BV at the Dok and Scheepsbouw Woudsend BV shipyard.

The electrical outfitting on the Windcat 41 has been completed, Alewijnse said, with works on the sister vessel Windcat 42 currently ongoing.

For the Windcat 41, Alewijnse delivered the complete electrical installation. This included a console and an alarm & monitoring system.

A new feature for this series is the replacement of the conventional batteries with Lithium-Ion equivalents, due to their high energy density, the company said.

Alewijnse also assisted the yard in making and installing the aluminum cable trays and foundations.

Alewijnse’s project manager Bertran Smit said: “We have been at the yard since 2009, working on the Windcat vessels. The results are well above expectations with newbuild and refit contracts of 17 vessels. The projects have generally run well for all parties. Woudsend and Windcat are very satisfied about the quality of the delivered vessels and Alewijnse’s flexibility.”
