The Bayard vessels have been designed to make journeys to the wind farm as comfortable as possible for passengers, followed by a safe transfer to the wind turbine. Comfort and safety are maximised thanks to the special catamaran hull, which can adjust its draft to limit the vessel’s movement, and a newly-designed low-impact fender system.
The vessels have extensive deck space to cater for spare parts and tools, and can carry two 10-foot-long containers. They are classed by DNV, equipped with a VSAT system and can accurately deliver fuel to certified systems at 40 litres/min up to a height of 45m above deck.
The entire Bayard fleet, Bayards 1 to 7, are designed with safety and comfort at the forefront, with well qualified and purpose trained dedicated crews to ensure the highest standards of operation.
