The launch of the eleventh new build Crew Transfer Vessel ‘Valour’ recently marked an enduring relationship with MAN power.
9 of the 11 CTV fleet operated by Turner Iceni are now powered by MAN engines
The most recent addition, Valour a 24 metre CTV has passed her maiden voyage and endurance testing with flying colours. Designed by Walker Marine Design and constructed by Diverse Marine, she is scheduled to begin a long term charter servicing the Gwynt Y Môr Offshore Wind Farm.
Richard Thurlow, Director of Turner Iceni, was asked why MAN was still clearly the engine of choice for his expanding fleet:
“We have actively chosen to power our new builds and consequently also our re-fit programme with MAN engines. Claims of reliability, fuel efficiency, Life time costs and crucially impressive service support have all been born out in reality.”
