deugro announces two new wind turbine transporting ro-ro’s in cooperation with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and Amasus Offshore B.V.

Ro-rodeugro Denmark and its partners Siemens Gamesa and Amasus Offshore B.V. will bring two newly designed ro-ro vessels—customized for transporting offshore wind turbine components—to the market. Siemens Gamesa and deugro have entered into a long-term charter agreement for the two newbuild vessels, ROTRA FUTURA and ROTRA HORIZON, which will be delivered in 2025.

The new concept builds upon the existing tailor-made Rotra concept with the ROTRA MARE and ROTRA VENTE vessels. The new vessels have been designed to accommodate the increasing size and weight of the next generations of offshore wind turbine components and, at the same time, to ensure large cargo intake and operational flexibility.

ROTRA FUTURA and ROTRA HORIZON will measure 167.6 x 26m and will be fitted with a stern ramp, three Liebherr cranes and a unique gantry system, allowing stowage of blades in three tiers, providing excellent flexibility in cargo composition and method of loading.

Energy consumption has been reduced thanks to an aerodynamically and hydro-optimized hull shape, a low-resistance special hull coating and Wärtsilä diesel engine with a 15% lower consumption and carbon footprint compared to today's standards. In addition, a hybrid propulsion system and an exhaust gas cleaning system meeting the highest IMO Tier 3 standards have been integrated into the new vessels, with special attention also being paid to waste heat recovery.

The two new vessels will be built at Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard in China and are scheduled for delivery in spring and summer of 2025.
