Service Operation Vessels
Service Operation Vessels (SOV) serve as means of transport, and also as a hotel, a warehouse and a workshop.

It transports equipment and technicians to and from the turbines within a farm. The vessel can stay at the wind farms for several weeks at a time and has a hydraulic walk-to-work gangway system that allows safe transfer of personnel and equipment to the turbines.
