Crew Transport Vessel (CTV)

FRS Windcat Offshore Logistics (FWOL) offers Crew-Transfer Ships in cooperation with the dutch company Windcat Workboats. WindCat Workboats is Europe's leading provider of specialist crew transfer vessels to the offshore windpower industry.

FWOL combines the long experience and considerable know-how of two companies which are well known in the shipping world: the FRS Group and Windcat Workboats. With over nine years of experience in the offshore wind industry, FWOL has successfully completed thousands of safe transfers to wind turbines.

FWOL provides tailor-made logistics concepts for each project according to its individual requirements. Furthermore, FWOL is a reliable partner for crew transfer services, employing efficient and continuously upgraded vessels.

This emphasis on new technology has, for example, already led to the reduction of typical hourly fuel consumption to only 200 litres while maintaining a service speed of 25 knots.

The fitting of catalytic converters for the reduction of NOx emissions further underscores the vessels' pioneering position with respect to environmental friendliness.

The Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) Windcat 28, Windcat 34, Windcat 35, Windcat 42 and Windcat 43 are used for daily transfers to the turbines of various offshore wind farms in the German sectors of North and Baltic Seas.
