Danish offshore safety and supply specialist Esvagt has won a contact by Dong Energy for standby vessel Esvagt Castor at the Hornsea 1 offshore wind energy farm project in the UK sector of the North Sea.
The 2009-built vessel will work as standby and man overboard rescue vessel during the building of the wind farm.
Ib Hansen, head of commercial for Esvagt, commented: “Activity levels in the offshore wind farm are expected to be high in the years to come while the wind farm is being established. We were chosen because of our ability to launch FRBs and rescue people in all weather conditions. The safety that we can guarantee was the deciding factor.”
Esvagt currently has 14 vessels on contract in the UK market.
