Low Carbon Installation Vessel for Floating Wind

Innovate UK has awarded funding to a consortium led by Morek Engineering and supported by Celtic Sea Power, Solis Marine Engineering, Tope Ocean and First Marine Solutions to design a new class of low-carbon installation vessel for the floating offshore wind market. The project aims to align the detailed requirements of the emerging floating wind sector with the objectives of the UK maritime decarbonization agenda.

This project is part of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 4 (CMDC4), funded by the UK Department for Transport (DfT) and delivered by Innovate UK. CMDC4 is part of the Department’s UK Shipping Office for Reducing Emissions (UK SHORE) programme, a £206m initiative focused on developing the technology necessary to decarbonise the UK domestic maritime sector.

The outline vessel design will be ready for engagement with class society to achieve approval in principle by early 2025.
