Edda Wind Takes Delivery of C416 Vessel for Servicing Offshore Projects


Edda Wind has taken delivery of service operation vessel (SOV) C416 from Astilleros Balenciaga, with the vessel to be contracted with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy at the Saint-Brieuc wind farm in France until 2028. 

The vessel has been prepared for zero-emission operations, with hydrogen as the energy carrier in the Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier concept adopted by Edda Wind. 

“C416 represents the future of offshore wind service vessels, being the second SOV worldwide prepared for a hydrogen-based energy system capable of up to four weeks of endurance,” says Kenneth Walland, CEO of Edda Wind. “This milestone positions the vessel to support the construction and commissioning of wind farms without generating carbon emissions, aligning with our commitment to sustainability.”

The company says the SOV is of Salt 0358 design and can accommodate up to 60 persons in separate cabins.
