Key Participants
Bibby Marine Services Limited is part of Bibby Line Group, a diverse €2.3 billion global business whose maritime heritage spans more than 200 years. Bibby WaveMaster 1 is the first in our series of next generation Service Operations Vessels (SOV) that serves the marine needs of offshore wind farm operators. ... More

Custom-designed, Bibby WaveMaster 1 enables offshore wind operators to work more efficiently, more safely and in maximum comfort, for periods of up to 30 days at a time.

- The vessel is built on a stable DP-2 (Dynamic Positioning) platform so it offers very high operability.
- It will provide safe offshore transfers for personnel by way of a motion compensated access system (Walk to Work).
- Equipment will be securely transferred by way of the heave compensated offshore-rated knuckle boom crane.
- A helipad, daughter craft and CTV landings provide additional turbine access.

With technicians on standby in the field 24/7, wind farm operators can act immediately to rectify expensive outages, even in the toughest of weather conditions.

Working efficiency is also one of the key drivers behind the innovative vessel design. The space has been carefully planned in terms of storage, workflow and logistics to ensure that the movement of both people and goods is smartly optimised.

The vessel has been specifically designed to be as 'green' as possible, with minimal emissions and low fuel consumption.

Whilst both safety and efficiency are integral features, comfort is also paramount. The Comfort Class 2 standard accommodation comprises 60 individual ensuite berths, all of which are equipped with TV and Wi-Fi, and are complemented by class-leading leisure facilities.
