First Esvagt SOV Goes to Work
Esvagt’s first offshore wind Service Operation Vessel (SOV), “ESVAGT FROUDE”, went on contract on Wednesday February 18th, while her sister ship, “ESVAGT FARADAY” is contracted to start at the beginning of April – in both cases to work for Siemens Wind Power.
The German energy company has provisionally chartered “ESVAGT FROUDE” for a five year contract to service the field and transport personnel during the constructing and operation of the offshore wind farm Baltic 2 in the Baltic, and the “ESVAGT FARADAY” for similar jobs for the Butendiek project in the northern part of the German sector of the North Sea – provisionally for a 10 year contract.
Options have been agreed for extending both contracts.
Esvagt recently ordered an almost identical vessel for servicing of the Dudgeon offshore wind farm being developed off the UK’s east coast.
