Edda Wind C416 Vessel
Edda Wind has announced that it took delivery of C416 from Astilleros Balenciaga on 26 March. This new addition to Edda Wind’s fleet signifies a pivotal moment in advancing sustainable energy solutions.

The vessel will be the permanent vessel in the contract with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy at the Saint-Brieuc wind farm in France, running until Q2 2028. The Service Operation Vessel (‘SOV’) C416 demonstrates Edda Wind’s commitment to providing reliable support for offshore wind projects, states the company.

The SOV C416 has been designed with flexibility and operability enabling it to service wind farms worldwide. The vessel has also been prepared for zero-emission operations with hydrogen as an energy carrier in a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier concept. Edda Wind has adopted this concept as it meets the company’s strict criteria for safe operation, logistical solutions, and endurance. For example, this way of handling hydrogen on board avoids exposure to the safety risks of several other green fuel solutions.

“C416 represents the future of offshore wind service vessels, being the second SOV worldwide prepared for a hydrogen-based energy system capable of up to four weeks of endurance. This milestone positions the vessel to support the construction and commissioning of wind farms without generating carbon emissions, aligning with our commitment to sustainability”,
says Kenneth Walland, CEO of Edda Wind.

“As operators seek to enhance efficiency, reduce operating costs, and minimise environmental impact in wind farm operations, specialised service vessels play a crucial role. Edda Wind is poised to capitalise on the growing demand for such vessels, offering tailored solutions to meet evolving industry needs,”
adds Walland.  

is of Salt 0358 design and the sister vessel of ‘Edda Brint’ was delivered from Astilleros Balenciaga shipyard in Spain in October 2022. It can accommodate up to 60 persons in separate high-standard cabins.

In addition to C416 and the seven vessels (all CSOVs) currently under construction, Edda Wind owns and operates two SOVs, Edda Mistral and Edda Brint and three CSOVs, Edda Breeze, Edda Boreas and Edda Nordri.
