Ørsteds Race Bank SOV begins trials

21-02-2018 14:00:00

Edda Passat, the first Service Operations Vessel (SOV) built in Spain, has begun its sailing tests. The ship departed from Ria del Eo in mid-February and is currently located in the port of Gijón, where it is to begin its two-week sailing test program before heading to Ørsted's Race Bank offshore wind farm in Great Britain.

Edda Passat and the sister ship Edda Mistral were manufactured by Astilleros Gondan for the Norwegian ship owning company Østensjø Rederi, which named and launched the two vessels earlier in February. Edda Mistral, which is expected to be delivered in August, will work at Ørsted Hornsea Project One wind farm in the UK.

Both vessels are already contracted for a period of five years plus the possibility of five one-year extensions of the contract. With 81 meters in length and 17 meters wide, the vessels accommodate up to 20 people and up to 40 technicians performing maintenance tasks on the offshore wind farms.

The technology staff is transferred to the wind turbines through a 23 meter long movable walkway. Spare parts and equipment are transferred through the use of a movable crane. Alternative options for transferring staff and cargo are the 11 meter long workboat installed on board of the vessel.
