The shipbuilding business at GONDAN Shipyard ushered in two important milestones in the near future. One was the naming ceremony of the first Spanish-built SOV "Edda Passat"; the other was the launching ceremony of another sister ship "Edda Mistral."
The ceremony was attended by Østensjø Rederi A / S, the owner of two new ships, and Ørsted Energy, the bank and financing agency, the design firm and the Rolls-Royce company, the ship operator.
The Edda Passat and Edda Mistral are 81 meters long and 17 meters wide and are designed and built for operation on the Ørsted wind farm off the coast of England with up to 40 technicians and about 20 crew members on board. Both ships are equipped with an UPTIME 23-meter long, dynamically compensated Walk-to-Work channel, a state-of-the-art 3D compensated crane and a fuel-filled CTV landing system. In addition to the aisle, the ship is equipped with an 11-meter rescue boat to safely deliver maintenance personnel to generators in the offshore wind farm.
