4th generation WMO SWAT Trimarans, built on lessons learned from previous designs. This has resulted in extraordinary performance, seakeeping, workability and safety. 

The vessels are built for 24/7 operation, with MLC approved cabins for marine crew to live onboard for longer durations. Upgraded fender system, Soft-Bow 2.0, active hydrofoils and active interceptors, ensures safe and efficient transfers in 2.0+mHs, raising the bar for CTV offshore accessibility.

The vessel was built at Assens shipyard in Denmark, under the supervision of WMO newbuilding department. Several improvement suggestions from WMO crew were implemented, making the vessel best suitable for the passengers onboard and for the crew to live on. With the key focus of building a hybrid vessel for 24/7 operation, that set a new standard for CTV transfer performance, we believe we have been successful.

The vessel offers our clients the highest workability and number of days where you can work offshore, maximizing utilization and ensuring easier and more cost-effective project planning.

Designed and developed by WMO, this is the 2nd generation of WMO SWATH Trimarans and they introduced a new level of passenger comfort and luxury. A large passenger area, with desks, sofas and extraordinarily large seats, similar to aviation first class seats, emphasized that passenger comfort and safety are our highest priority.

The design was also the first of its kind being built under high-speed code; HSC A, as a passenger vessel. The redundant engine setup, large flush foredeck and active damping fender system were some of the features, allowing the vessel to operate independently and uninterrupted for weeks offshore.

This changed the operations for our clients, first during the construction phase and later in O&M. it meant more efficient operations and huge fuel savings, from not during daily transits to port.

The first vessels even designed and built by WMO, were of this design. A batch of four vessels were ordered from Fjellstrand shipyard in Norway and they were all delivered between 2013-2014. The vessel design came to lift, starting with the idea of developing an active hydraulic damping fender system. From there the vessel was built around it and the SWATH Trimaran design was chosen, to combine the advantages from mono hull and catamaran hull designs.

All four vessels were designed and delivered as 12 pax vessels, as this was the industry standard. As some of the first operators, WMO later upgraded all to 24 pax vessels. This meant that they were not only the highest performing vessels of the day, but also cost-effective, being able to carry twice the passengers.

Today we have sent all of the WS25 vessels to Taiwan, where they are supporting the construction and O&M for the Taiwanese offshore wind market.

The two SES vessels have been under WMO management since delivery from the yard in 2015 and 2016, from Umoe Mandal, in Norway. The SES design is well proven technology, but is new in the offshore wind industry. We quickly saw how this would change the game and how the ultra-high-speed vessels, would offer something that could not be matched by others.

The design offers transit speeds of up to 40 knots, with records above 50 knots. This is achieved without compromising on passenger comfort or workability, in terms of transfer limits. A perfect fit to WMOs strategy of offering the highest quality, which gives our clients the best utilization of our assets.

This design came under WMOs ownership after our acquisition of another shipping company, operating crew transfer vessels. The vessels are built in Australia, but were delivered from the yard to Denmark in 2015 and have been operating in Europe ever since.

Originally built as 12 pax vessel, but has under WMO ownership been upgraded to 24 pax vessel. The wavepierce design and the low operational draft of just 1.25m, enable the vessels to operate from any port, achieve high transit speed and be very fuel efficient.

The vessel design has shown its worth, by being very reliable, easy to maintain and being very versatile.
