General – Zero-Emission
Edda Wind’s new build Edda Breeze is the first of seven offshore wind service vessels prepared for emission-free operations.
“It is special for us to take Edda Breeze to Norway, where Edda Wind was established in 2015. Now we get to show the first state-of-the-art CSOV to stakeholders at home,” says Kenneth Walland, CEO of Edda Wind.
The Commissioning Service Operation Vessel is designed for operations in wind farms anywhere in the world. Prepared for emission-free operations with a hydrogen-based propulsion system, it will enable the construction and commissioning of wind farms without generating carbon emissions within just a few years.
“Being the first in seven C/SOVs fit for zero-emission, Edda Breeze marks a milestone for Edda Wind. We strongly believe that the upcoming hydrogen solution will be a game changer. It is also proof that we continue to improve our operations,” says Walland.
Edda Wind will have a fleet of nine SOVs and CSOVs. Next year six of these will be in operation.
When finalized, Edda Breeze will go on a ten-year contract with Ocean Breeze on the Bard Offshore 1 farm in Germany.
