Wind of Hope has sailed to her country France on 17th June 2021 for the naming ceremony and will serve in the Danish energy company Orsted’s Hornsea Project II wind farm located off the UK’s coast.
NB67 Wind of Hope is the sister vessel of the world’s first DP2 SOV NB57 Wind of Change delivered in 2019 to LDA for the maintenance of Borkum Riffgrund 1&2 and Gode Wind 1& 2 wind farms.
Hybrid battery DC network DP2 SOV Wind of Hope is equipped with a TTS Phoenix motion-compensated walk-to-work gangway, a TTS Colibri crane, and a daughter craft on board to safely transfer technicians and goods to the wind turbines. The vessel’s DP2 system is based on the 4-Split system. Accommodation of the vessel is specially designed in hotel standards to provide home comfort to the technicians and the vessel crew. Wind of Hope’s hybrid machinery is serving the environment with her sister as the pioneers of this journey.
