Manor Finds O&M Vessel Inspiration Somewhere Between CTV and W2W

Manor Renewable Energy has completed the design phase and tank testing of a new 40-metre technician support vessel that the company plans to have built in 2019.

The company’s Operations Director Toby Mead said: “At present the market moves from a 26-metre CTV directly to a walk to work vessel of 3 to 4 times the length – there is little in the middle of that range and that’s the area we believe the sector is lacking and the area that would lower the overall cost of operations and therefore energy – all in all, the vessel will be fit for purpose, have extended endurance, be innovative in design and built for a team of technicians living in complete comfort.”

Manor Renewable Energy said it took the key lessons learnt from their 2017 build, Manor Venture, whilst bringing a new concept to the sector.

The vessel features individual cabins for eight crew members and 20 offshore technicians, and has the ability to push up against the transition piece due to an engineered piston arrangement minimising the impact.

The complete vessel design will be carried out by Walker Marine Design and Manor will build it at its own shipyard in Portland, Dorset.

The company acquired the entire share capital of UK ship builders Manor Marine UK Limited (MM) in November 2017.
