Manor Renewable Energy’s (MRE) recently purchased crew transfer vessels (CTVs), the MPI Cervantes and MPI Cardenio, have arrived at the Manor Marine site in Portland, Dorset for extending, re-engining and refit works.
Once reconditioned, the two MPI vessels will be new additions to the MRE fleet, destined for work on offshore wind projects.
“In just over two months’ time we will have two vessels to add to our expanding fleet, in nearly new condition. These vessels will complement the work of the Manor Venture and will greatly increase our working capabilities on offshore projects,” MRE Marine Superintendent Michael James said.
As reported earlier, MRE bought the two 17-metre CTVs from Offshore Support Vessels BV last month.
In 2017, MRE built the Manor Venture, which is one of the largest CTVs currently operating within the offshore renewables market. The construction of her sister vessel, to be delivered in 2020, will commence towards the end of this month.
