The SOV C416, later to be renamed Edda Goelo, was delivered to Edda Wind on 26 March. C416 is of Salt 0358 design and the sister vessel of Edda Brint, delivered from Astilleros Balenciaga shipyard in Spain in October 2022. 

It can accommodate up to 60 persons in separate high-standard cabins. The vessel has been prepared for zero-emission operations with hydrogen as an energy carrier in a liquid organic hydrogen carrier concept.

“C416 represents the future of offshore wind service vessels, being the second SOV worldwide prepared for a hydrogen-based energy system capable of up to four weeks of endurance. This milestone positions the vessel to support the construction and commissioning of wind farms without generating carbon emissions, aligning with our commitment to sustainability,” said Kenneth Walland, CEO of Edda Wind.

The SOV C416 will be the permanent vessel in the contract with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy at the 496 MW Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm in France, running until the second quarter of 2028. The wind farm is expected to be fully commissioned in spring 2024.


In addition to C416 and the seven vessels (all CSOVs) currently under construction, Edda Wind owns and operates two SOVs, Edda Mistral and Edda Brint and three CSOVs, Edda Breeze, Edda Boreas, and Edda Nordri.
