Mojo Maritime, the British marine renewable energy specialists, and Hamburg based ship owner, Hammonia Reederei, have signed a memorandum of understanding to finance and build the ‘High Flow Installation Vessel’ (HF 4). With its ability to operate in currents up to 10 knots using dynamic positioning, the special vessel is set to transform the offshore construction market. The HF 4 has a twin hull configuration designed by Voith and is powered by four Voith Schneider propellers.
Engineered by Voith, the design is based on Mojo Maritime’s vision of a vessel designed to install tidal energy turbines in high energy tidal streams. The HF 4 accommodates 44 people and has a maximum A-frame crane lift capacity of 250 tons. With these specifications, it can handle all tidal energy work – from the installation of the turbine support structure to the mounting of the turbine and the long-term maintenance of the unit. It also has a wider potential, including in the offshore wind sector and more general subsea construction applications.
