Turkey’s Cemre Shipyard has shared a video showing the launch of Ørsted’s service operation vessel (SOV) Wind of Change.
The SOV has now entered the final stage of construction and is expected to be delivered in early 2019. Once delivered, the Wind of Change will head to the German North Sea to service the Borkum Riffgrund 1 & 2 and Gode Wind 1 & 2 offshore wind farms.
The vessel was ordered by France’s Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA). Ørsted chartered a second SOV from LDA in April.
This vessel will also be built by Cemre Shipyard and once delivered in 2021 will service the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One wind farm offshore the UK.
