Triumph Subsea Services Ltd. has signed a letter of intent with InfraStrata Plc for the construction of offshore wind farm development vessels at InfraStrata Plc Harland & Wolff Shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The letter of intent envisions the construction of two Windfarm Development Vessels each of which will have a length of 200 m and a beam of 35 m.
Under the terms of the LoI, InfraStrata’s subsidiary, Harland & Wolff would be responsible for the build, assembly, and delivery of the WDVs to Triumph.
The LoI initially contemplates the construction of one vessel, with Triumph having an option for an additional vessel to be built at Harland & Wolff (Belfast).
The vessels will come with diesel-electric hybrid engines that will eventually transition into hydrogen fuel cells, offering what management considers to be the “greenest” solutions to wind farm developers.
According to Infrastrata, once contracted, each vessel would be expected to generate revenues for Harland & Wolff of between £340 m & £360 m over the 24-30 month period of fabrication.
