Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) has signed a new contract to deliver three equipment packages to Esvagt for offshore wind farm service vessels.
NES will deliver an integrated automation system (IAS) and navigation and communication package with Concept Bridge for three vessels.
The vessels are of the Havyard 831L SOV design and will be built by Havyard Ship Technology, NES said.
The first equipment package with engineering is scheduled for delivery in March 2020, while there is an option for the delivery of a complete tank gauging system, with sensors for tank sounding, as integrated components of IAS, the company said.
“NES have previously delivered propulsion systems to ESVAGT. The fact that we have now sold ten concept solutions with automation and bridge solutions, as well as five propulsion systems to one and the same customer, is a milestone for us,” said NES General Manager Sales & Marketing Svein Ove Farstad.
In 2017, NES secured a contract to deliver a complete diesel-electric system to Esvagt’s HD 831 service operation vessel (SOV) deployed at the Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm.
