Havyard Power & Systems to Supply Electrical Equipment for DeBu SOV
Havyard Power & Systems will deliver an electrical design and equipment package for Esvagt’s Service Operations Vessel (SOV) of the Havyard 831 SOV design, which will be deployed on German Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm.
The contract is worth NOK 10 million (approximately EUR 1 million) and the package includes IAS and Concept Bridge, as well as a tank gauging system.
The SOV will be built in the Zamakona shipyard in Bilbao, Spain.
This will be the fifth vessel constructed by Zamakona Yards using an electrical package from the company and the seventh Esvagt vessel for which Havyard Power & Systems has supplied equipment and engineering services. The other contracts concern four wind farm service vessels, one oil service vessel and a crew changeover vessel.
The SOV chartered by MHI Vestas for the 252MW Deutsche Bucht (DeBu) offshore wind farm is scheduled to be delivered to Esvagt in August 2019.
Along with announcing the contract, Havyard Power & Systems informed that it is changing its name to Norwegian Control Systems (NCS).
Havyard is merging all its products in the segment Power, Automation and Navigation into a joint business area called Norwegian Electric Systems (NES). As part of this change, Havyard Power & Systems is also renaming to Norwegian Control Systems.
