Wind Energy – CSOV
Last week Edda Wind took delivery of Commissioning Service Operation Vessel (CSOV) Edda Boreas, from GONDAN Shipbuilders – Astilleros Gondán.
Edda Boreas has been designed with flexibility and operability that enables it to service wind farms worldwide. The vessel has also been prepared for zero-emission operations with hydrogen as energy carrier in a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) concept.
This concept has been adopted by Edda Wind as it meets the company’s strict criteria for safe operation, logistic solutions and endurance. For example, this way of handling hydrogen on board avoids exposure to the safety risks that exist for several other green fuel solutions.
“Operators are continuously looking for ways to improve the efficiency of wind farm operations and reduce operating costs and environmental footprint. Our specially designed offshore wind service vessels provide exactly this. We expect the demand for specialised service vessels to further increase, and we are well-positioned to capitalise on this trend,” says Kenneth Walland, CEO of Edda Wind.
The vessel will commence work at Dogger Wind farms UK in May for minimum two years.
