Eidesvik vessel exits lay-up to work for offshore wind company

Siemens Wind Power has chartered Eidesvik Offshore’s subsea support vessel Acergy Viking for nine months to provide accommodation at project in Germany.

This is the first contract Eidesvik has secured from a company in the offshore wind sector, the Oslo-listed vessel operator said.

The vessel will undergo a short mobilisation period before the contract commences, during which an offshore gangway system will be installed.

“I am pleased with our organisation’s ability to adapt to a new marked and that we now will enter a new business segment with one of our existing subsea vessels. The Acergy Viking has been in lay-up for a short period and we are glad that she will be out in operation again,” Eidesvik CEO Jan Fredrik Meling said in a release today.
