Manor Orders CTV Couple from Strategic Marine
UK-based Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) has ordered two StratCat 27 (SC27) crew transfer vessels (CTVs) from Singapore-based shipbuilder Strategic Marine.
The new additions to the company’s offshore support fleet will each be 27 metres in length and capable of carrying up to 30 passengers.
The two new CTVs are scheduled to be delivered in summer 2022 after which they will support MRE’s offshore operations in the UK, Europe, and Asia.
In 2021, Strategic Marine presented its next-generation CTV of a Strat Cat design, which is said to offer enhanced vessel capabilities with a reduced environmental footprint and hybrid drive options.
MRE currently has four vessels in its fleet: Manor Venture, Manor Endurance, Manor Initiative, and Manor Enterprise.
The company launched CTV Manor Initiative in 2020 after being refitted at MRE’s Portland base in the UK.
MRE purchased the CTVs MPI Cervantes, now Manor Initiative, and MPI Cardenio, now Manor Enterprise, in April 2019 from Offshore Support Vessels BV with an aim to fully recondition them.
