Both newbuilding Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are purpose-built for Ørsted’s wind farms off the coast of the UK.

Edda Passat will be delivered in the last week of February and thereafter start operations at the Race Bank offshore wind farm.

Her sister vessel Edda Mistral will be delivered in August and operate at the Hornsea Project One wind farm.

Both vessels are contracted for a fixed period of five years, plus five one-year options.

The two SOVs, built by Astilleros Gondan in Spain, will be homeported in Grimsby, and used as motherships for technicians engaged in the maintenance of wind turbines.
