With an overall length of 35.8 meters, a beam of 11 meters and a draft of 1.7 meters, this project vessel is a renewed cooperation between AFAI and MHO. Based on the first batch of hybrid wind power operation and maintenance vessels, the project vessel has further optimized its design, eliminated the traditional diesel main engine, and relied on multiple generators and a set of lithium battery packs to drive the IPS propellers. This international advanced power system design, which forms a variety of power combination modes for the ship’s traveling and working conditions, will achieve significant results in energy saving and environmental protection. With its excellent energy-saving and environmental protection performance , the project vessel will also provide a stable guarantee for MHO’s future service enhancement in the field of offshore wind power operation and maintenance.
