Palfinger was selected to equip four new service vessels for Edda Wind, Østensjø Groups’ offshore wind segment, with lifting solutions as well as lifesaving appliances. Located on Spain’s northern coast, two renowned shipyards have been appointed to build Edda Wind’s new offshore vessels.
Two commissioning service operation vessels (CSOV) are being constructed at Gondán Shipbuilders. Each of them will be fitted with one of Palfinger’s PK15500M cranes and one PK33002M crane, the latest model of Palfinger’s foldable knuckle boom cranes. Two slightly smaller service operation vessels (SOV), awarded to Balenciaga Shipyard, will be equipped with two PK15500M cranes and one PK33002M crane each.
Palfinger also secured the deal to deliver lifesaving appliances to all four new Edda Wind vessels. While each SOV will be fitted with two liferaft davits, each CSOV will be provided with two totally enclosed lifeboats with accompanying davits in addition to two liferaft davits.
The delivery of all Palfinger equipment is scheduled for 2021 and 2022, right before the vessels are put to sea.
