Norwegian offshore wind service company, Edda Wind, has named its latest service operation vessel (SOV) the Edda Brint at a naming ceremony at Astilleros Balenciaga shipyard in Spain.
Launched in 2021 and to be delivered in August, Edda Brint is a 82.85 metre-long vessel being purpose built for Vestas, the wind turbine maintenance contractor, for the Seagreen offshore wind farm off the coast of Angus. The SOV is almost completed and is now being prepared for sea trials before it commences its operations at Seagreen.
The vessel will serve as the mother vessel for wind turbine technicians as they perform commissioning and maintenance work on offshore wind turbines. Edda Brint has an accommodation capacity of up to 60 people, a motion-compensated gangway system, and will feature a propulsion system that allows for future installation of zero-emission hydrogen technology.
Vestas chartered Edda Brint for a firm period up until 2037, so she will be visiting Montrose Port every 2 weeks for the next 15 years.
