SEPTEMBER 17, 2018 — Norway’s Havyard Design & Solution and Havyard Ship Technology have won a contract from Esbjerg, Denmark, headquartered Esvagt for the design and building of two further offshore windfarm service vessels.
The vessels will be delivered to Esvagt in third quarter 2020 and first quarter 2021, and form part of a long-term contract with the Danish wind power company MHI Vestas. The windfarm service vessels will service the Borssele 3-4, wind field, located 22 km off the coast of Zeeland in the Netherlands, and Triton Knoll, which is 33 km off the coast of Lincolnshire England.
They will be the fourth and fifth vessels for Esvagt to be equipped by Havyard Ship Technology at its shipyard in Leirvik. The vessels have been allocated build numbers 146 and 149.
“Havyard is particularly pleased that good customers have come back and placed orders with our shipyard in Leirvik. This shows that Esvagt is very satisfied with the quality of the vessels we have delivered previously and that the yard in Norway is still competitive in specialized and advanced vessels, where quality, function, price and precise delivery are essential,” says Havyard Ship Technology EVP Lasse Stokkeland.
The vessels are being built to a new 831L design, With a length of 70.5 m, the 831L will have accommodations for up to 60 people.
Designed for maximum fuel efficiency, the vessels will be equipped with compensated walk-to-work gangway and Esvagt’s specially designed daughter craft.
