Turkey's Cemre Shipyard has contracted Dutch equipment supply company Pronomar to equip two service operation vessels (SOVs) ordered by Louis Dreyfus Armateurs for Ørsted with drying systems for the workwear of the technicians.

The first of the two vessels, Wind of Change, has been using Pronomar's equipment since June 2019 when it started servicing Ørsted's offshore wind farms in the German North Sea.

With accommodation for 90 people, this vessel is one of the biggest SOV's in the offshore wind industry.

After a successful delivery in April of this year, LDA commissioned Cemre Shipyard once again to build their sister vessel named "Wind of Hope".

This vessel is planned to be delivered in 2021 and will support the building of two offshore wind farms near the coast of England.

Both SOV's offer the most modern and comfortable conditions such as cinemas, gymnasia etc. for the technicians onboard.

"However, how important it is to keep your crew happy in their time-off, as important is it to keep them comfortable during working hours. That is why Cemre Shipyard has contacted Pronomar to equip both SOV's with drying systems for the workwear of the technicians," aid the shipping & marine supplier Netherlands.

The drying systems, made from seawater resistant steel, dry their coveralls, jackets, trousers, boots and gloves within a short amount of time, guaranteeing a comfortable and dry start of each shift. The drying systems prolong the lifespan of the costly workwear, while at the same time improve the comfort and health of the people working outside.
