More Work for Havyard with Esvagt’s Dudgeon OWF Deal
Havyard Ship Technology AS has signed a contract with the Danish shipping company ESVAGT for the design and building of another Havyard 832 SOV wind farm service vessel.
ESVAGT will use the vessel on a long-term contract with Dudgeon Ltd. for the provision of services for Dudgeon offshore wind farm, currently being built by Statoil, Statkraft and Masdar off the coast of Norfolk in the UK.
This will be the third service ship Havyard is to build for offshore wind production and also the third for ESVAGT. The vessel, which will be assigned build number 125 by Havyard Ship Technology’s yard in Leirvik in Sogn, is scheduled for delivery to ESVAGT in September 2016.
Gisle Vinjevoll Thrane, Vice President Sales at Havyard Design & Solutions, said: “The contract for the first two ships for ESVAGT last summer was a breakthrough for Havyard in this market.”
Thrane added: “We were very happy to enter into a collaboration with ESVAGT on the first two vessels and even happier to note that they have again chosen us. Havyard has a strong brand name as regards the design and building of service vessels for offshore oil production, and we are now in the process of establishing a position for ourselves in the market for the production of renewable energy as well. The fact that we have products for and relations with different market segments is a big strongpoint for Havyard, and it means that we are not as vulnerable to fluctuations in each individual market.”
