Special Operations Vessels (SOVs)


Wind Power Support operates a floating hotel that is specifically designed for installation and maintenance projects in the offshore wind, oil and gas industry.

Keeping within budgets depends largely on having the equipment working reliably during the project. On the DP Galyna, an Ampelmann heave compensated gangway with a reliable DP2 system, transfers the engineers to the windmills or platforms, making sure both crew and the windmills or platforms remain safe under all circumstances. For milder conditions, boat landings for windcats and support vessels increase the versatility of the ship.

With top spec equipment, the vessel owned by Chevalier Floatels, sets new standards in terms of reliability, efficiency and comfort.

Cabins with en suite bathrooms for single or double occupancy with TV, internet and game consoles are just a few of the amenities provided on board. Ample recreational spaces with dayrooms, fitness and 24 hours services are standard on the vessels.

DP Galyna

The DP Galyna is a smaller floating hotel that has been taken under the Wind Power Support wing and features a special Ampelmann ‘walk to work’ system for safe and easy transfer of personnel. Owners of Galyna chose Wind Power Support as ships agent to look after all vessel and port requirements.
