The Netherlands: Royal Wagenborg Takes Over First High Speed VEKA Catamaran

The first high speed VEKA Catamaran for the Offshore Wind Farm industry has been delivered to Royal Wagenborg. The catamaran will supply remote wind farms in the North Sea with crew, equipment and various supplies.

Later this week, VEKA will launch a second catamaran for a shakedown cruise, and it will not be long before this catamaran will also be servicing one of the offshore wind farms.

With the completion of these powerful “support vessels” VEKA Group strikes a new path; the Offshore Wind Farm market. Last year, VEKA engaged in a collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee, a leading engineer with a global presence in the offshore industry. With the development of a series of powerful catamarans, VEKA caters to a strong demand in the market of fast and safe transport of personnel, technicians and equipment to and from offshore wind farms.

The strong lightweight aluminum construction provides safety and a top speed of 27 nautical miles per hour and caries a total of twelve passengers, three crew members and three 10 ft containers.
