Umoe Rapid has successfully completed its first charter at world’s first floating wind farm 30 MW Hywind Scotland pilot park and at 402 MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm for Statoil, having worked under cargo and crew transfer contract.

This newbuild high-performance CTV was delivered in May 2017 and is currently under commercial and operational management by World Marine Offshore. Umoe Rapid is the second WAVECRAFTTM Crew Transfer Vessel from Umoe Mandal AS that has carried out a charter for Statoil at Hywind offshore wind farm.

Ben Lawson, Statoil’s Senior Operations Engineer at Hywind park has complimented the crew and vessel’s performance, saying: “Been a pleasure working with you guys. You have supported the work scope at Hywind excellently and more importantly, you have done so safely.”
