Tidal Transit orders new crew transfer vessel

Boat to be delivered next March by Mercurio

Spanish shipbuilder, Mercurio Plastics, will supply Tidal Transit, with a new offshore wind-specific crew transfer vessel. The Tia Elizabeth will be delivered in March 2013 and will boast a rear crane.

Capable of working up to 150 miles from shore, it will be capable of supporting UK Round 3 projects, says Tidal Transit. It will complement its two existing crew transfer vessels and one survey boat.

Tidal Transit’s Ginny Louise has been deployed on the Greater Gabbard project, while the Eden Rose has been contracted to Sheringham Shoal. The company’s other offshore wind clients have included RES Offshore.
