Esvagt secures contracts with MHI Vestas for newbuild vessels

Danish offshore wind support specialist Esvagt has sealed two long term contracts from wind turbine manufacturer MHI Vestas utilising two newbuild service operation vessels (SOVs) for the wind farms Borssele III-IV in the Netherlands and Triton Knoll in the UK.

The contracts will run for a period of up to 15 years and also include an option for an additional SOV for servicing the Moray East wind farm in the UK.

“We are proud to continue our close partnership, and together with MHI Vestas set the standard for innovation and long-term solutions. We look forward to presenting 831L as yet another customized SOV, in which we combine the client’s needs with our competencies and experience in order to guarantee the most optimal and cost-efficient solution,” said Søren Karas, CCO at Esvagt.

The two newbuildings were ordered at Havyard last week and are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2010. 

“Loyal and innovative partnerships have allowed ESVAGT to develop into the market leader in offshore wind. Building on these relations is essential to achieving our ambitions in offshore wind,” said Peter Lytzen, CEO of Esvagt.
