ESVAGT gains new vessels

ESVAGTESVAGT has collected the delivery of two new vessels, one for the offshore wind industry and that other for the oil and gas sector.

The new build, Esvagt Dana, was delivered by Zamakona Shipyard in Bilbao, afterwards, ESVAGT took ownership of the Esvagt TBN  new build from Cemre Shipyard in Turkey. This means that ESVAGT has added two new vessels, both delivered in the same week, to its fleet bringing the total to 43 vessels.

"Two newly built vessels underline ESVAGT’s continued ambition for organic growth within both the offshore wind and offshore oil/gas sectors," says ESVAGT’s CEO, Kristian Ole Jakobsen.

The new builds are an SOV (Service Operation Vessel), which will be assigned to GE on the
Merkur offshore wind farm in the German sector of the North Sea, and an MPV (Multi Purpose Vessel), which will service Hess’ oil/gas production in the Danish sector. Both vessels will enter charter over the summer.

"The two new builds will help to strengthen ESVAGT’s position in both the offshore wind and the offshore oil/gas markets. We continue our trusted partnership with Hess on a 10 year contract, and with an SOV for GE, we now have service vessels on contract with three major, leading wind turbine manufacturers," says Kristian Ole Jakobsen.

The 396MW
Merkur wind farm is located approximately 45km north of Borkum Island in the North Sea and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019. It is anticipated to generate enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of around 500,000 households annually.
