The SOV Windea Leibniz is currently at Ulstein Verft for an upgrade to widen her operational scope in offshore wind. The first milestone has now been completed.

On 30 November, the yard installed the adjustable pedestal for the gangway, a lift of approx. 32 tonnes. With this pedestal in place, the vessel will be able to take on assignments on all wind farms in the North Sea, and this is the first major milestone in this project.


The next milestone will be to complete a 50 per cent increase in single cabins for charterers. When this milestone is completed, the vessel will have her status changed from being an SOV to becoming a CSOV.

“After the upgrade, this will be one of very few vessels with 60 single cabins for charterers, compared to the current 40. This means we can take in more people, enabling the vessel to operate as a Construction-SOV,” says Matthias Müller at Bernhard Schulte Offshore.


Windea Leibniz is X-BOW vessel number 100, and she also comes with the X-STERN, a design feature which Bernhard Schulte Offshore was the first shipowner to opt for.
