Norwegian offshore wind service company, Edda Wind, has commenced a new two-year contract with the Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farm, marking a significant milestone in the development of the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

Over the next two years, the newbuild Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOV) Edda Boreas will facilitate commissioning operations at the wind farm. The vessel has the capacity to accommodate up to 95 offshore wind technicians simultaneously, helping to meet the wind farm’s installation targets.

The contract brings Edda Wind’s fleet to a total of five vessels currently in operation, with nine more in the pipeline.

Headquartered in Haugesund, Norway, Edda Wind is a pure-play offshore wind service company that specializes in the development, construction, ownership, and operation of purpose-built Service Operation Vessels (SOV) and Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOV) for offshore wind farms worldwide.

Currently, Edda Wind owns and operates three purpose-built offshore wind SOVs and two CSOVs. In addition, they have nine dedicated offshore wind vessels under construction, including one SOV and eight CSOVs. All newbuild vessels are designed to be compatible with zero-emission technologies such as liquid organic hydrogen carriers and/or methanol fuel.

The Doggerbank Offshore Wind Farm, located in the North Sea off the northeastern coast of England, is considered to be the largest offshore wind farm in the world. The project is a joint venture between Equinor, Vårgrønn, and SSE Renewables, a British renewable energy company.

The project is being developed in three phases that will generate a combined 3.6 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy.
