E.ON has awarded Alicat Workboats a contract to build four new vessels to support offshore wind projects. The first to be built will serve E.ON's Robin Rigg Wind Farm off the U.K.'s Solway Firth.

Alicat has started to build the new 19-meter, high-speed wind farm service vessel, and delivery is due mid-2013. According to the companies, the aluminum catamarans will offer greater loading capability across the fore deck, as well as a well-equipped aft deck, and will also feature a redesigned saloon and island wheelhouse arrangement.

Powered by two MAN V12 engines and jet propulsion via twin Rolls Royce Kamewa Jets, the workboats will be capable of 30 knots.
