MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has received equipment orders for a total of four offshore wind service vessels which will expand the Edda Wind fleet, the offshore wind segment of the Østensjø Group.
Two of the equipment packages were awarded by the shipbuilder, Astilleros Gondán in Asturias, Spain for Edda Wind's zero emission prepared Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOV), the first of which will enter into a firm charter period of 11 years starting Q1 2022. Each of these vessels will be equipped with a Horizon all-electric walk-to-work gangway, including a passenger lift which is interconnected to a Colibri 5 tonne 3D motion compensated crane.
The other two equipment packages were awarded by Astilleros Balenciaga who are building Edda Wind's second generation Service Operation Vessels (SOV), which are also prepared for zero-emission hydrogen fuel. The first of the two vessels will enter into service on a 15 year charter agreement in Q2 2022, and will also be equipped with a Horizon all-electric walk-to-work gangway system and 3 tonne Colibri 3D motion compensated crane.
