Wind Farm

A wind farm support vessel, also known as a wind farm Service Operation Vessel (SOV), is a specialized vessel type used to install and maintain wind turbines in offshore wind farms.

At Fincantieri Marine Group, we build SOV’s with the latest technology to support working wind farms. They are built to operate safely in any environment and withstand severe weather conditions.

Fincantieri’s Wind Farm Support Vessel

Our SOV is designed to support offshore wind farms, ensure the wind turbines operate safely at sea, and provide comfortable accommodations for the crew on board. These vessels are used to transport personnel and equipment to and from the wind farm location and provide maintenance and other support services. Fincantieri Marine Group is at the forefront of this growing industry.
