    In July Swire Pacific Offshore (SPO) took delivery of Pacific Orca, the company’s first and also the world’s largest windfarm installation vessel, from Samsung Heavy Industries in Geoje, South Korea.

    With a length of 161 metres, a breadth of 49 metres and a depth of 10.4 metres, Pacific Orca is the world’s largest structure for installing Wind Turbine Generators, with the capability to install 12 units of a 3.6 MW design.

    SPO’s Managing Director, Neil Glenn, said, “The delivery of Pacific Orca is an important milestone for us. We are confident that the vessel will deliver the high quality performance and service levels that our offshore wind customers are looking for.” 

    Swire Pacific Offshore has another windfarm installation vessel on order with scheduled delivery at the end of this year. By the end of 2015, the fleet size will grow to more than 100 vessels from its current level of 75 vessels.
