Northern Offshore Services (N-O-S) orders two new powerful and advanced, next-generation N-O-S Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) to be delivered in 2024. These two vessels will form a new class of N-O-S-designed CTVs called the I-Class and are part of an aggressive newbuilding and conversion programme intended to meet the offshore wind industry’s high demand for future sustainability.

With a genuine aim for sustainable marine transportation, the new I-Class design is N-O-S’ Zero CO2-emission Crew Transfer Vessel and a guiding star that will lead the Offshore Wind Industry into the future. Built on Northern Offshore Services’ extensive experience designing CTVs, the I-Class will be equipped with innovative Green Technology solutions that are flexible to meet future demands.

When transporting technicians, crew, and cargo to offshore wind farms, providing a comfortable, safe journey onboard the CTV is essential. In addition, the CTV has the ability to stay offshore. This demands endurance and workability to optimise wind farm operations.

The I-Class vessels will be equipped with the latest low-emission engine technology and are capable to operate in hybrid or fully electrical mode when performing transit and docking.

“We are proud and thankful for the hard work of everyone involved in delivering our new, state-of-the-art, next-generation N-O-S CTV design. We have high expectations for the new series of vessels. At Northern Offshore Services, we set the standards and lead the way for a greener, more sustainable industry,” said David Kristensson, CEO of Northern Offshore Group.
