WINDFARM SERVICE VESSELS CONTRACT
Havyard secures windfarm service vessels contract
Havyard Design & Solution and Havyard Ship Technology have won a contract with ESVAGT for the design and building of two further windfarm service vessels.
Havyard Design & Solution will provide the design and Havyard Ship Technology will equip the vessel. This will be the sixth and seventh service vessels that Havyard will have delivered to ESVAGT, making Havyard the world’s leading designer of windfarm service vessels.
The vessels will be delivered to ESVAGT in Q3 2020 and Q1 2021, and form part of a long-term contract with the Danish wind power company MHI Vestas. The windfarm service vessels will service the fields Borssele 3-4, located 22 km off the coast of Zeeland in the Netherlands, and Triton Knoll, which is 33 km off the coast of Lincolnshire in England.
This will be the fourth and fifth windfarm service vessels for ESVAGT to be equipped by Havyard Ship Technology at the yard in Leirvik.
“Havyard is particularly pleased that good customers have come back and placed orders with our yard in Leirvik,” says EVP of Havyard Ship Technology Lasse Stokkeland.
“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 specialised and advanced vessels, where quality, function, price and precise delivery are essential.”
