Wind Energy – Saint-Brieuc
Last Friday Edda Wind’s Service Operation Vessel Edda Goelo was launched at Astilleros Balenciaga in Spain.
Edda Goelo will commence a five-year contract with Siemens Gamesa at Iberdrola’s offshore wind farm in the Saint-Brieuc Bay in Q3 2023.
Edda Wind has a newbuild program of eight vessels in addition to Edda Breeze delivered in May this year and Edda Passat and Edda Mistral delivered in 2018. Balenciaga will deliver the first SOV, Edda Brint in August.
Edda Goelo will serve as a mother vessel for wind turbine technicians as they perform maintenance work on offshore wind turbines.
Contrary to the other Edda Wind vessels, the Edda Goelo will not be seen in the company’s usual orange and yellow – for the first time, an Edda vessel will be painted blue and white, in accordance with the profile colours of Siemens Gamesa.
