Edda Wind’s latest Operations Vessel launched

Spain’s Gondan Shipyard has launched Edda Breeze as the first in the series of four Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) it is building for Norway’s Edda Wind AS, part of the Østensjø Group.

Designed by Salt Ship Design, also of Norway, the new CSOV measures 88.3m by 19.7m and is to be equipped with a 3D motion compensated crane and gangway, the latter to have a maximum extension of 28m for personnel transfer.

Accommodation will be provided for 93 technicians and 27 crewmembers along with meeting, mess and recreational spaces. Following delivery the vessel will go on charter to Ocean Breeze Energy GmbH & Co to support operations at the Bard Offshore 1 wind farm off Germany.

This 400 megawatt farm, which makes use of eighty BARD-supplied 5.0 turbines, was developed over a decade ago using the 2,623dwt Wind Lift 1, a jack-up vessel specifically built for the project.
