Amasus continues readying vessels for next-gen wind turbines transport

Amasus Shipping has continued with its vessel modification plans as its Rotra Vente arrived at Holland Shipyards Group facilities at Hardinxveld-Giessendam. Like its sister vessel Rotra Mare, that is currently undergoing modifications at Delfzijl, Rotra Vente will be adapted to cater to the demands of its assignments in the future. 

Amasus said that Rotra Vente’s characteristic cover has been removed and she is being equipped with sponsons around the hull in order to increase her beam for more deck space and stability for sailing with the future generations of wind turbines. Following the completion of modifications, Rotra Vente’s beam will be increased to 23.6 metres.

Also her lifting bow opening will be increased and the Ro/Ro ramp strengthened to allow future smooth loading and discharging operations.

Rotra Vente is expected to enter services in March 2022, following Rotra Mare which is expected to enter services in January 2022.
