Edda Wind presents the first CSOV for zero-emissions

Edda Wind’s newbuild Commissioning Service Operation Vessel (CSOV)
Edda Breeze is visiting Oslo ahead of beginning operations.

The CSOV is designed for offshore wind operations and is the first of seven offshore wind service vessels prepared for emission-free operations. When finalised, Edda Breeze will go on a ten-year contract with Ocean Breeze on the
Bard Offshore 1 farm in Germany.

Edda Wind will have a fleet of nine SOVs and CSOVs. Next year, six of these will be in operation. Prepared for emission-free operations with a hydrogen-based propulsion system, the vessels will support the construction and commissioning of wind farms without generating carbon emissions within just a few years.

"It is special for us to take Edda Breeze to Norway, where Edda Wind was established in 2015. Now we get to show the first state of the art CSOV to stakeholders at home,"
commented Kenneth Walland, CEO of Edda Wind.

"Being the first in seven C/SOVs fit for zero-emission, Edda Breeze marks a milestone for Edda Wind. We strongly believe that the upcoming hydrogen solution will be a game changer. It is also a proof that we continue to improve our operations,"
added Walland.

"Being an early mover in delivering purpose-built vessels for offshore wind farm operations, Edda Wind has already gained a solid track record of excellence in the offshore wind industry. We continue to see a strong growth in demand."

"We have a strong foundation and are a market leader in the pure play offshore wind segment. By combining innovative technical solutions and years of maritime experience, we enable our clients to successfully accelerate the transition to sustainable energy production,"
concluded Walland.
