Windcat Workboats owns and operates a growing fleet of over 44 offshore crew transfer vessels, mainly in the European offshore wind sector, but also in the oil and gas industry and outside Europe. The vessels are designed and built by Windcat and, as such, include over 16 years of experience in the field. The vessel’s layout and propulsion is optimised to transfer personnel offshore in a safe and comfortable environment. Windcat’s organisation provides the highest quality of service, enabling the charterer to perform their work offshore without delay. The focus on safety has the highest priority in the operation of the vessels and can be found throughout the organisation. The size of our fleet and the variety of vessels ensures that we can deliver the right vessel to each project.
Crew Transfer Vessel
Oceansat 4G Pro
Crew Transfer Vessels from windcat sail continuously between the coast and wind farms which are only a few nautical miles outside 4G range. The investment for an expensive VSAT system is therefore not justified and the limits to receive 4G signal are constantly being sought. And even though we are getting very close, unfortunately there is still no service level agreement for 4G that guarantees signal receiption. So, as mentioned, it is important that the ship stays within 4G as long as possible in order to offer the crew and its passengers internet for crew wellfare, but more importantly, operational internet traffic. But as soon as the CTV is out of range of 4G, a smart system must ensure that only the captain can still send E-mails for operational internet traffic. The rest of the internet traffic must then be blocked to prevent high bills. Oceansat has completed this question with Oceansat Pro.
