Hamburg-based company, United Wind Logistics (UWL) has ordered a modern deck carrier from Chinese shipyard Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard. The 148.5m long carrier and 28m beam carrier is scheduled for delivery by the end of November 2019. The order includes options for two further vessels.

The carrier will be powered by two MAN 9L 21/31 engines and two MAN 6L16/24 GenSets. The vessel will also be fitted with a Selective Catalytic Reduction system. The MAN engines will be built by MAN Energy Solutions’ licensee, CMP, in China. The vessel will also be delivered DP2 ready.  The four medium-speed GenSets will be assembled and fully tested by CMP.

Lex Nijsen, Vice President, Head of Four-Stroke Marine at MAN Energy Solutions, said: “This new order confirms our solid foothold within the segment for smallbore, medium-speed engines powering specialised vessels. I welcome this new reference and feel that it highlights the diversity of our product portfolio.”

The vessel will operate primarily in European waters and will meet the strict requirements for efficiently transporting offshore wind-farm components such as blades, nacelles and towers.

Meanwhile, Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) ordered two Wind Service Operation Vessels (WSOV) for operations and maintenance work at offshore wind farms in the North Sea. The vessels are under construction at Cemre Marin shipyard in Turkey, and will be powered by four MAN ES 8L21/31 variable-speed GenSets (DC grid system). These allow the customer to increase the efficiency of the vessel and significantly reduce the vessel’s CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.
