Windward Offshore orders two more CSOVsWindward Offshore orders two more hybrid Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) from Vard. In October 2023, Windward signed a contract on two similar CSOVs. The contract had an option for two additional vessels which Windward has chosen to exercise with this new firm contract.
 
The first vessel is expected to be delivered in the second half of 2025, with the other three vessels joining the fleet in the course of 2026. The 87.5-meter vessels have a beam of 19.5 meters and will be equipped with a height-adjustable motion-compensated gangway with elevator system, and a height-adjustable boat landing system. The vessels will be outfitted with a SeaQ package from Vard Electro that includes systems and solutions for power, control, bridge, and communication. Vard Interiors is delivering HVAC-R and interior concepts. The vessels are also prepared for operation on green methanol. The CSOVs will have accommodation for 120 persons on board.
 
All four vessels are designed by Vard Design in Ålesund Norway. For two vessels, the hull will be built in one of VARD’s shipyards in Romania, while the final outfitting, commissioning and delivery will be carried out by one of VARD’s shipyards in Norway, the other two will be delivered from VARD’s shipyard in Vietnam.
 
Windward Offshore is a joint venture of SeaRenergy Offshore, Blue Star Group, Diana Shipping and SeraVerse.
