Edda Wind Takes Delivery of Dogger Bank CSOV
Offshore wind service vessel company Edda Wind has taken delivery of Edda Boreas from Gondan Shipyard in Spain.
The commissioning service operation vessel (CSOV) is the second of six sister vessels to be delivered from Gondan.
Edda Boreas will start the installation of the motion-compensated gangway, and the crane system after leaving the yard in Spain.
Thereafter, the vessel will commence work at Dogger Bank wind farms UK in May for a minimum of two years.
Edda Wind said that Edda Boreas was designed with flexibility and operability that enables it to service wind farms worldwide. The vessel has also been prepared for zero-emission operations with hydrogen as energy carrier in a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) concept.
This concept has been adopted by Edda Wind as it meets the company’s strict criteria for safe operation, logistic solutions, and endurance. For example, this way of handling hydrogen on board avoids exposure to the safety risks that exist for several other green fuel solutions, the company said.
Edda Boreas is of Salt 0217 design and build number C490 from Gondan Shipbuilders in Spain. The vessel is 88.3 metres long with a beam of 19.7 metres. It can accommodate 120 persons in high-standard cabins.
Edda Wind owns and operates two SOVs, Edda Passat and Edda Mistral, which are both on contract with Ørsted on wind farms in the UK.
One CSOV, Edda Breeze, and one SOV, Edda Brint are completing the gangway installations these days and will start their operations for Ocean Breeze in Germany in February, and for Vestas in the UK in March, respectively. Under the current fleet expansion program, Edda Wind’s fleet will consist of 10 vessels by 2025.
