Austal Wind Express 21

The Wind Express 21 catamarans are used to transport service crews and equipment to the many offshore wind farms that are located off the coastlines of several European countries.

The Wind Express 21 wind farm service vessels are specifically designed for operation in rough sea conditions, and offer stability and fuel efficiency through the highly-refined catamaran hull form which requires less power and fuel to meet operational requirements.

In association with a high tunnel height, Austal’s advanced Z-bow chine hull form enables the vessels to operate at speeds of up to 30 knots with targeted seakeeping ability in up to 2.0 metres significant wave height.

The Wind Express vessels' practical arrangement enables comfortable transits for up to 12 wind farm personnel, with a high quality interior fitout, good visibility and ample fore and aft cargo stowing, as well as accommodation for the vessel’s crew.
