Havyard Leirvik shipyard has handed over the third Service Operations Vessel (SOV) to ESVAGT in just nine months.

Esvagt Havelok completes a series of three vessels that ESVAGT has ordered at Havyard Lervik to support Vestas at several offshore wind farms.  It will be deployed to support the Triton Knoll wind farm from the beginning of October.

Back in July Havyard delivered
Esvagt Alba  to Esvagt. The 70.5m SOV has been awarded a long term contract by MHI Vestas working Moray East OWF in the UK. It followed the delivery of Esvagt Schelde a which will support Vestas at the Borssele 3&4 and Northwester 2 wind farms.

"We are very pleased to receive another really good vessel as a result of an exceptionally well-functioning collaboration with designer and shipyard",
said Bjørn Viig, Project Director, Newbuilding and Projects in ESVAGT: "The yard has incorporated experience from the first to the last vessel and ensured that new and even better solutions have been implemented each time," he says.

“It is a vessel filled with innovative solutions and good design, and both Vestas and ESVAGT have helped shape the result. With strong cooperation and good dialogue, we have continuously improved,”
added Bjørn Viig.

Vegard Skår, Project Manager at Havyard Leirvik, commented: “On vessel number three, we really see the effect of sister vessels. We get incredibly good feedback from suppliers, the owner and class companies, and everyone who has been involved in building this vessel can be proud of the result."

ESVAGT DCEO Kristian Ole Jakobsen said: "Despite the fact that Hayyard Lervik has been challenged by both restructuring and covid-19, the vessel offers excellent quality in design and execution."
