Esvagt Wins Vestas Service Deal for 760 MW Dutch Offshore Wind Farm

Denmark’s Esvagt has secured a contract to service Vestas at Ecowende’s Hollandse Kust West offshore wind farm in the Netherlands and has initiated the process of designing and building the new service operations vessel (SOV).

The partners have agreed on a 15-year contract with extension options, which is aligned with Vestas’ service contract for Ecowende, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco.

At the end of last year, Ecowende placed an order for 52 Vestas V236-15.0 MW wind turbines for the Hollandse Kust West offshore wind farm. The wind turbine installation is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2026.

The newbuild will be the 6th purpose-built SOV for Vestas; a testament to the strong partnership between Vestas and Esvagt, who have been cooperating since 2010, the Danish company said.

“We are pleased to extend our cooperation with ESVAGT who has demonstrated over many years that they can deliver high performance and adapt to market changes. There has always been a shared vision between us to continuously improve on safety, quality and the sustainable developments needed going forward,” said Keld Kristensen, Head of Operation Logistics Offshore at Vestas.

The 760 MW offshore wind farm, for whose site the Ecowende joint venture won the permit in December 2022, is located 53 kilometres off the Dutch coast of IJmuiden.

The Hollandse Kust West offshore wind farm adheres to several non-price criteria from the Dutch government, including the creation of a bird corridor within the wind farm layout, increasing the hub height to create more vertical space for birds as well as integrating bird and bat detection and deterrence systems into the turbine design.
