Wind of Change En Route to Completion (Timelapse)

Turkey’s Cemre Shipyard has shared a timelapse video showing the construction of Ørsted’s service operation vessel (SOV) Wind of Change.

The SOV is in the final stages of construction and is scheduled for delivery in early 2019.

Following the delivery, the SOV will service the Borkum Riffgrund 1 & 2 and Gode Wind 1 & 2 offshore wind farms in the German North Sea.

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.
