WInd energy – SOV
Spain’s Balenciaga Shipyard launched a new service operation vessel (SOV) at its facilities at the end of July.
The future Edda Brint is the first in a series of two SOVs being built by Balenciaga for Norwegian owner Edda Wind.
Once completed, the vessel will have an LOA of 82.4 metres, accommodation for 60 people, and a battery hybrid propulsion system.
Its primary role will be to operate as a platform from which technicians can perform commissioning and maintenance on offshore wind turbines.
Edda Brint has a 15-year contract with Vestas waiting for her upon delivery in April 2022.
