Spanish shipyard delivers first SOV

Astilleros Gondán has completed the first Spanish-built service operation vessel (SOV), Edda Passat, and delivered it to Østensjø Rederi.

Designed by Rolls-Royce Marine, the 81-metre by 17-metre vessel will be deployed at the Race Bank wind farm, off the coast of the United Kingdom.

Together with sister vessel Edda Mistra, they can accommodate up to 40 technicians who perform maintenance tasks at the wind farms, and a crew of about 20.

Both are equipped with an Uptime 23-metre, heave-compensated walk-to-work gangway, a 3D-compensated crane and a CTV landing system with bunkering facility.

There is also an on-board, 11-metre daughter craft to allow the safe transfer of maintenance technicians to the offshore wind turbines.

Edda Mistral will be used at Ørsted’s Hornsea Project One wind farm.
