Norway’s Havyard Design & Solutions, together with several regional subcontractors, have landed a NOK 70 million contract for the design and supply of equipment for number five in a series of wind farm support vessels for Denmark’s Esvagt.
The ship will be built at another shipyard in Europe. Norwegian Electric Systems, in which Havyard holds a stake of just over 50%, will supply the vessel’s diesel electric propulsion system.
“We have developed a vessel that has met requirements from both shipowner and operator,” said Gisle Vinjevoll Thrane, Havyard Design & Solutions sales director. “We have balanced technical aspects with commercial requirements, and as such, we have been able to win this contract in a tough and competitive market.”
The vessel is due for delivery to Esvagt in August 2019 when it will enter a contract with the Danish wind power company MHI Vestas and work on the OWF Deutsche Bucht field.
