Increasing its momentum in the offshore wind market, NOV has inked a contract to design and equip two wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) newbuilds for Denmark-based Cadeler and Chinese giant COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry.

The built-for-purpose WTIV will have the largest jacking capacity and will be able to transport and install seven complete 15 MW turbine sets or five sets of more than 20 MW turbines, NOV said Aug. 24.

NOV also said the hybrid, DNV-certified, cyber-secure Cadeler X-Class WTIVs are designed with 5,600 sq m of deck space and a carrying capacity of more than 17,600 tons, said to be the largest in the industry.
