RIX LION’ EXTENDED AND RECONFIGURED
UK-headquartered crew transfer specialist Rix Sea Shuttle has doubled the passenger capacity of one of its vessels to fulfil a contract at Scotland’s largest wind farm. The Hull-based company invested a six-figure sum to increase the Rix Lion’s carrying capacity from 12 to 24 passengers, to complete the contract at Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd near Wick. The move means Rix Sea Shuttle now claims to have the UK’s largest fleet of 24-passenger vessels working in the offshore industry. All six vessels in the fleet are contracted to major wind farms in UK and European waters, and the company has chartered an extra two to fulfil the growing demands for crew transfer vessels. The work was carried out by Dunston (Ship Repairs) in Hull, who reconfigured the interior to convert the boat without compromising on the deck space or comfort of the crew. www.maritimejourn...
