Chinese shipyard CIMC Raffles has begun construction at the Yantai shipyard of ‘Juv Boreas’, a wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) commissioned by Netherlands-based marine construction company Van Oord.

The DNV classed vessel is designed by Danish Naval Architect Knud E Hansen with length of 176m, width of 63m, moulded depth of 13.2m, and maximum operational water depth of 80m. It can accommodate 135 persons on board with the maximum net lifting capacity of 20,000t and a deck area of over 7,000m2. The lifting capacity of the main crane is more than 3,000t and the height of each of the four triangular truss legs is 127.4m. In order to meet the clean and environmental discharge requirements, it is equipped with about 3000m3 of methanol storage tank and five methanol dual fuel engines.

Royal Van Oord is a family-owned mainstream offshore engineering service company with a history of 150 years, engaging in the sectors of marine engineering, offshore engineering, offshore protection, infrastructure engineering and offshore wind power engineering turnkey services. CIMC Raffles claims a long experience in construction for the offshore wind power industry, building high-end offshore wind power equipment and units.

The shipyard says it and Van Oord will make full use of their respective advantages in the fields of engineering, construction, operation and maintenance to promote the sustainable development of the offshore wind power industry, expedite the application of clean energy and contribute to the ‘Green Industry Partners’ (GIP) action and ‘Carbon Naturality’ target.
