Transporting support vessels

Two new windfarm support vessels "Excalibur" and "Challenger" arrived in Rotterdam earlier this month

The two vessels weigh nearly 53 tons each and measure around 22 x 7 x 11 meters.

Blue Water handled the transport from Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam where the two vessels were loaded on to the MV "Paula" which is operated by heavy lift carrier SAL.

"As part of our involvement, we have also handled the towage from the discharge location to a safe berth in Rotterdam as well as other practical tasks such as bunker supply. We have had a good cooperation between Blue Water offices in Ho Chi Minh, Nantes, Rotterdam and Singapore during this project", says Bruno Ferrand, General Manager of Blue Water Nantes and our Marine team in France.

The vessels were built at shipbuilder Piriou's yard in Ho Chi Minh. Since 2010, Blue Water has provided a wide range of services to Piriou.
