Offshore wind service vessel company Edda Wind has signed contracts with the Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas for its commissioning service operation vessels (CSOVs) in 2024 and 2025.
According to Edda Wind, the contracts total a minimum of 750 days of firm work with options for extension of each work scope.
The company recently placed a EUR 250 million order with Vard for four new CSOVs, with options for ordering up to four additional vessels.
Once these four newbuilds are delivered, Edda Wind will have a fleet of 14 vessels, of which two are currently in operation, with five more expected to commence operation this year.
Last month, the company took delivery of the CSOV Edda Boreas which is scheduled to start working at the Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the UK this May.
The vessels that will serve the contracts are to be nominated from Edda Wind’s fleet of CSOVs at a later stage, the ship owner said.
All CSOVs in the fleet can accommodate 120 persons and are prepared for zero-emission operations with hydrogen as an energy carrier in a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) concept.
When it comes to Vestas, the turbine manufacturer recently acquired ST3 Offshore in the sixth tendering round since the Polish offshore steel foundations maker declared bankruptcy.
