Hotel ship ready by offshore windmill park
C-Bed's hotel ship Wind Perfection is now anchored at Anholt Offshore Wind Farm, which in the coming months will serve as a floating hotel for the many technicians who are involved in the work to install and commission the turbines.
The work is carried out by Siemens' staff, but DONG Energy also use the floating hotel, as it reduces travel time and makes it possible to exploit periods of good weather as much as possible.
So far, service vessels have sailed technicians to the park from Grenaa, but will continue to transport technicians between turbine positions and the hotel ship that is able to anchor close to activities.
The distance from north to south in the park is 20 km. The turbine installation has started in the southern part of the park, closest to the base in Grenaa. This distance means that time to transport crew increase as the turbine installation progresses and moves north.
Wind Perfection has previously sailed under the name MS Christian IV, where it sailed in regular service between Denmark and Norway for the shipping company Color Line.
The ship is 153 meters long and contains more than 150 well-equipped cabins with shower, toilet, television and Internet. In addition, there are well-developed common facilities including restaurant, gym, cinema, meeting rooms and lounge.
The former ferry, which later was named Julia, was transformed into a hotel ship at Fayard earlier this year.
