This, regrettably somewhat blurred picture, shows the brand new heavy-lift jack-up vessel Innovation tonight in the Sound on its way from the Gdynia shipyard to its home port Bremerhaven. The vessel, which is owned an operated by HGO InfraSea Solutions, will be used to build and maintain offshore wind farms and offshore oil and gas facilities. (My guess is that the oil and gas work will prevail)
