Konsberg to design and deliver for Awind

In: VesselsWindfarms
Norweigian enterprise Konsberg Maritime has won a contract valued at NOK 250 million to design and equip two construction service operation vessels (SCOVs) for Norwegian shipowner Awind AS, part of Integrated Wind Solutions AS.

The new CSOVs will be built by China Merchant Heavy Industries (CHMI) to Konsberg Maritime’s UT 5519 DE design. The two companies stated that they have “a long and close relationship”. In 2023, the vessels will be delivered to Awind.

The vessel design is focused on reducing emissions and enhancing sustainability. Konsberg Maritime’s integrated equipment solution includes permanent magnet Azimuth thrusters, generators, electrical systems, a fully integrated bridge with navigation, DP and automation systems, deck machinery equipment and control systems.

“Awind’s determination to promote humane, environmentally-friendly safe and efficient operation is entirely consistent with KONGSBERG’s mission to incorporate sustainability in everything we do,” remarked Egil Haugsdal, President at Kongsberg Maritime. “This cooperation will have positive ripple effects across the entire organisation, as well as reinforcing Kongsberg Maritime’s market position in the growing renewable energy segment.”

“We are very pleased to strengthen and build on our relationship with Kongsberg Maritime, both through the design and development phase and in the future, as we look forward to continuing to work together to ensure that our vessels operate as sustainably, humanely and efficiently as possible,”
added Christopher Andersen Heidenreich, Managing Director at Awind.
