    ESVAGT takes delivery of third newbuilt SOV vessel

    Tuesday, Havyard Leirvik shipyard handed over the third SOV offshore service vessel to ESVAGT in just nine months.

    On Tuesday, ESVAGT received another SOV vessel from Havyard in Norway - the third vessel delivered from Havyard to ESVAGT within just nine months. The vessel completes the order for three SOVs ordered for Vestas.

    Tuesday, Havyard Leirvik shipyard handed over the third SOV offshore service vessel to ESVAGT in just nine months. NHST 149, as the yet-to-be-named vessel is known, completes a series of three vessels that ESVAGT has ordered at Havyard Lervik to service Vestas in several offshore 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", says 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.

    For example, the design of the V-sat system has been improved to offer better internet and TV signal on board, and the SMST walkway system ensures stepless and level-free access for warehouses and technicians.

    “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,”says Bjørn Viig.

    Vegard Skår, Project Manager at Havyard Leirvik, shares the view:

    “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, he says.

    ESVAGT DCEO Kristian Ole Jakobsen is also enthusiastic:

    "Despite the fact that Hayyard Lervik has been challenged by both restructuring and covid-19, the vessel offers excellent quality in design and execution," he says.

    FACTS:
    NHST 149 is a sister vessel to ‘Esvagt Alba’, working in the Moray East wind farm, and ‘Esvagt Schelde’, servicing Vestas in Borssele 3-4 and Northwester 2 wind farms in Dutch and Belgian waters, respectively.
    NHST 149 will have its first day at work in the Triton Knoll wind farm from the beginning of October.
