Winds of change for Fred. Olsen
After more than 35 years of building and operating oil and gas vessels, drilling units, FPSOs, and tankers, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier saw an opening in the wind turbine installation market. It promptly ordered two large newbuilds, designed specifically for this purpose. The Full Picture visited the Lamprell shipyard at Jebel Ali, UAE, to see the first vessel, Brave Tern, nearing completion.
