"Aaryan" will service offshore wind farms

New wind farm boat from Alnmaritec

Alnmaritec, Alnwick, Northumberland, UK, recently announced the successful launch of one of the largest boats it has built in recent years.


The "Aaryan" has been built for the North East based company North Sea Logistics, one of the UK’s leading operators of wind farm support boats, and is a slightly larger version of the popular "Wave Commander" class of vessels from Alnmaritec. She was launched at Blyth in Northumberland and after her successful sea trials she has now left to begin operations on an offshore wind farm in the North Sea. She is the ninth in a line of craft that Alnmaritec has built over recent years for servicing offshore wind farms.

‘Aaryan’ is an aluminium asymmetric catamaran, 18m long and 6.2m wide, with a displacement of around 22 tonnes. She is fitted with twin electronically controlled Caterpillar C18 diesel engines driving conventional four bladed 800mm diameter propellers through Twin Disc MGX 5135 Quick Shift gearboxes. These give her a top speed of over 25 knots and she is also fitted with powerful twin electric bow thrusters to give her excellent manoeuvrability. She carries a complement of 2 crew and 12 passengers.
