Ørsted signs contract for new SOV

Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) new service operation vessel (SOV) will service Ørsted’s Hornsea Project Two wind farm, once the vessel is delivered in 2021. The vessel will be designed by Salt Ship Design and built at Cemre Shipyard in Turkey.

"This is the third SOV vessel, which is chartered by Ørsted and operates on long-term contracts from our operational facility in East Coast Hub, which is currently being built in Grimsby," says Duncan Clark, Program Director for Hornsea Projects One and Two.

It is Louis Dreyfus Armateurs' second order at Salt Ship Design. The first order was back in February 2017 for Wind of Change, an SOV vessel for Ørsted's German offshore wind farms Borkum Riffgrund 1 and 2 and Gode Wind 1 and 2.

According to LDA, the 84 meter long vessel will be equipped with an highly innovative hybrid propulsion system that uses Diesel generators with variable speed and direct current propulsion networks, as well as assistance from batteries that can provide back-up for failures on diesel generators.

The SOV makes it possible for technicians to get safely to the wind turbines with a custom-designed work vessel and a dynamic motion-compensated footbridge as well as a helicopter tire. The vessel can accommodate up to 60 technicians.

Hornsea Project Two is going to be built 89 kilometers off of the coast of Yorkshires in the UK. It will be run from Ørsted's new Operations and Maintenance Center in Grimsby. Once it is operating in 2022, it will become the world's largest wind farm.
