The large red boat is the Pacific Orca. It is a specially designed wind turbine installation vessel, and will be used for construction of the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm. It is a heavy-lift jack-up vessel. The wind turbines are pre-assembled at Nigg, then loaded onto the ship for transport to the site.

The blue boat on the right is the Island Crown. It will also be used for offshore windfarm work.
