Seacat Enterprise exceeds expectations with Servogear CPP

Seacat Services first High Speed Utility Vessel, Seacat Enterprise (YN 80) has performed beyond expectations on sea trials.

The 27m South Boats IOW catamaran is a new category of vessel for the offshore wind market, designed to provide both rapid crew transfer and wide-ranging logistical support for extended periods at sea.

Seacat Enterprises

“Seacat Enterprise has run mechanically perfect throughout the trials period achieving or exceeding all targets. We were out today in 'Storm Doris', 2.5m seas and the vessel ran unhindered at 85% load. The crew were still walking around the saloon drinking their coffee with no slamming, no vibration and only 52dba noise levels....an incredible vessel” South Boats IOW, February 2017.

 Specifications:

  • Length: 27 m
  • Diesel engines: 2 x MTU 12V2000M72
  • Engine Power/rpm: 2 x 1080kW@2250rpm
  • Gearbox: 2 x Servogear HD295, H-gear configuration
  • Propeller diameter: 1175 mm
  • Yard: South Boats IOW

Seacat Enterprise are able to carry 4 twenty foot containers, or a combination of sizes, in addition to its regular complement of 24 windfarm personnel.  Furthermore, with 40,000 liters of fuel available she will be able to operate consistently for extended periods offshore.

 

"Seacat Enterprise is a new breed of support vessel for the offshore energy sector," said Ian Baylis, Managing Director, Seacat Services. "As our first HSUV, she combines the core attributes that are essential for long-term logistical operations in the deep water construction environment. To put this in more simplistic terms, she is small and nimble enough for high-speed crew transfer and big enough to adopt a supply vessel role."

 

"That said, we’re determined to make sure that the word 'utility' doesn’t evoke a 'jack of all trades' image that suggests we have compromised on the core ingredients that form the basis of each of the class-leading vessels in our fleet."

 

Despite her new features, as part of the DNV-GL class-certified Seacat Services fleet, Seacat Enterprise retains the proven technology and attributes to which offshore wind personnel have become accustomed. Enterprise employs the same soft-mounted wheelhouse structure as her sister vessels, alongside further adaptations to boost passenger comfort and minimize noise and vibration. In addition, fender and access systems will be familiar to technicians, ensuring ongoing safety and productivity in the testing offshore environment.
