Brunvoll to supply thrusters for three new CSOVs

Norway’s Brunvoll has won a contract to supply a series of thrusters for three commissioning service operation vessels (CSOVs) under construction for Edda Wind. The vessels, due for delivery in 2024, are being built to a Salt Ship design, one at Astilleros Gondán in Spain, and two at Colombo Dockyard in Sri Lanka. Edda Wind holds options for more vessels. The thruster package will comprise traditional tunnel thrusters, LowNoise tunnel thrusters, and retractable azimuth thrusters. Brunvoll will also supply condition monitoring systems.

The company’s sales manager, Bernt Rune Riksfjord, commented: “Edda Wind is one of the market leaders within offshore wind, with seven CSOVs and two SOVs on order. All of them have Brunvoll thrusters and we are proud to yet again be selected by Edda Wind. Brunvoll has a strategic commitment to be a preferred vendor of thruster systems for renewable energy vessels with dynamic position capabilities.”

Østensjø Wind AS Norway and Wilhelmsen New Energy AS are the two largest shareholders in Oslo-listed Edda Wind, each with 25.7% holdings.
