Norway’s New Havyard Ship Technology in Leirvik has handed over another wind farm service vessel to Danish shipping company ESVAGT.
The ESVAGT Schelde is the first in a new series to be delivered to ESVAGT. While the first vessel has been completed, work is well under way on the second vessel, and the third is being towed to the yard in Leirvik, scheduled for arrival early this year.
The Havyard 831 L SOV design is 70.5m long and 16.6m wide.
Commenting on the close cooperation between ship designer and owner, Gisle Vinjevoll Thrane, vice president Sales at Havyard Design & Solutions, said: “This line of wind farm service vessels is a good example of the result of team efforts. Through our long-standing, close cooperation with ESVAGT, we have gotten to know each other and built trust. That means we can also challenge each other and build ships that are in high demand in the market.”
