Edda Wind, a company founded by the Norwegian Østensjø Group, once again places its trust in GONDAN Shipbuilders with the order for a CSOV (Commissioning Service Operation Vessel), which will be the fifth vessel of the series currently under construction and the seventh project commissioned to the shipyard by the Norwegian shipowner for the renewable energy sector.
The vessel, designed by the Norwegian firm Salt Ship Design, will be part of Edda Wind’s fleet – the world’s most environmentally friendly and efficient vessels of their type – and will provide services in offshore wind farms. GONDAN adds up, since 2015, seven projects for the offshore renewable energy sector, a growing industry in which the shipyard consolidates itself as a leading shipbuilder and at the forefront in the integration of the most complex and efficient technological solutions for the sector.
GONDAN is proud to be chosen once again by Edda Wind, one of the most innovative and reputed companies in its sector worldwide, which leads the way in the adoption of clean energy and the implementation of cutting-edge technology to achieve the maximum reduction of the environmental impact of its operations. With this new contract GONDAN consolidates the close relationship with the Norwegian group – immersed in a determined fleet expansion plan for which it counts on GONDAN as its reliable supplier – with 5 vessels currently under construction. Moreover, once this CSOV is delivered it will be the vessel number eighteen ordered by companies with relation to the Østensjø Group, including seven Edda Wind vessels ordered in the last 20 years.
