Pelagic Walu and Pelagic Wahoo are designed for service operations during commissioning and operation of offshore wind parks that will often operate in challenging weather conditions. Equipped with advanced dynamic positioning systems and a wide operational window, they aim to maximize efficiency in offshore operations.  The two vessels have a significantly increased DP capability, a highly efficient Methanol-ready genset and a fully electric autonomous gangway with large crane capacity. The vessels are not only fuel-efficient but also utilize zero-emission fuels.  Vessel can be upgraded with additional batteries which together with implementation of Kongsberg in-field charging solution would allow to operate on batteries only. 

The 93-metre-long vessels have extensive accommodation capacity, which was designed considering every detail to make service technicians comfortable and feel at home, but also has been designed in the way which is taking into consideration operational needs of the vessel and efficiency of logistics on board. Accommodation offers a gym, sauna, cinema, various lounges but also dedicated meeting rooms, office spaces to work in teams or individually. The vessels are utilizing Kongsberg’s Permanent Magnet technology which together with various other measures reduce noise and vibration, having also in focus on board motion comfort which in consequence allows for Safety and Comfort Class 2 notation.
