NYK and NOS ink bareboat charter contract

In: Vessels
NYK and Northern Offshore Services AS (NOS), a subsidiary of the Sweden-based Northern Offshore Group AB (NOG), have concluded a bareboat charter contract for a crew transfer vessel (CTV) to service offshore wind farms.

The CTV, which is named
Energizer, is owned by NYK and will be chartered to NOS through a 10-year bareboat charter contract to transfer crews to offshore wind power stations, mainly in Europe, under the operation of NOS.

NYK has additionally agreed to dispatch its engineers to NOS to participate in operations and ship management in Europe.

NOG operates over 60 CTVs in the offshore wind power market in Europe, and NYK and NOG signed an MoU in December 2019 to explore a CTV business related to offshore wind power generation. This bareboat charter contract is a partial development of that MoU and will be the first CTV owned by NYK.

Energizer is a CTV developed by NOS which is equipped with a large-capacity battery that can be recharged from a power generation facility and can be switched to hybrid mode in an effort to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. It is measures 39 metres in length and is expected to be delivered later this year.
