Vallianz Develops Battery-Hybrid Heavy Lift Ship for Offshore Wind

Singapore-based offshore vessel operator Vallianz is looking to venture into an underappreciated segment of the offshore wind market - heavy-lift component transport. While wind turbine installation vessels (WTIVs) and service operation vessels (SOVs) get lots of market attention, the offshore wind boom will also require more heavy-lift capacity to transport blades, tower sections and turbine nacelles.

Working with Ulstein, Vallianz has come up with a design for a turbine component carrier with a desirable feature for charterers in the renewable-energy business: dual-fuel, battery-hybrid propulsion. The house-forward design is intended for carrying all forms of heavy industrial components on deck - LNG process modules, wind tower jackets, transition pieces, blades, platform topsides and other oversize parts. It will have a clear 65,000 square foot aft deck to accommodate large components, and it is capable of float-over platform installations. Its deck load capacity will come in at about 32,000 tonnes.
