Greater efficiency through reduced weight
Our composite vessels are famously tough workboats – but 40% lighter which means they burn far less fuel than aluminium vessels of a similar size. With efficient modular construction allied to the innate multi-tasking capacity of every offshore support vessel, a CTruk workboat is the most versatile and cost-effective solution available.
Proven technology and staunch reliability
Safety comes first on every offshore vessel project. This is evident in our use of Rolls-Royce water jets, integrated systems redundancy and intuitive control for singlehanded man-overboard recovery. With ISO 9001 operating procedures, allied to the cleanliness of resin infusion, our build processes are as safe and efficient as our finished composite vessels.
Versatility through interchangeable pods
Our use of vacuum infusion creates industry-leading laminates; and our patented modular pods represent a uniquely effective solution. Our clients can change a workboat’s functionality in just a few hours, bringing unmatched versatility of application to the offshore wind farm sector.
Shorter production times and higher speeds
CTruk’s unique modular construction process, enables faster production of offshore vessels and equipment. Smart materials and new technology creates stronger, lighter, more hydrodynamic composite vessel hulls with lower power demands, reduced fuel costs and higher speeds at sea.
“The CTruk MPC19 workboat is a core part of the fleet at CWind, where we are undertaking several tasks for major players in the offshore wind industry. The fuel economy has been great – saving clients up to half what they would have had to pay with an equivalent aluminium vessel. The versatility of the MPC19 has meant that we have been easily able to adapt our vessels to perform any task asked of them. The comfort of the design is popular with technicians too, and more are on order.”
“Offshore Turbine Services needed safe, flexible and fuel-efficient vessels that could be used to ferry crew and equipment to the wind turbines. The CTruk MPC19s offered us not only that but the additional functionalities possible with the pod system, making them a very sound investment. We were also very impressed with CTruk’s innovation record. We found that the CTruk MPC19 ticked all the boxes for us, while also costing much less than similar aluminium workboats. We are looking forward to more joining the OTS fleet.”
