Edda Accommodation, operated by Østensjø Rederi, order a mono-hulled accommodation vessel from Hyundai Heavy Industries.

This next generation Offshore Accommodation Vessel, designed by Salt Ship Design, is 155 meter long and will have a total accommodation capacity of 800 persons in one or two men cabins. The interior of the vessel is of executive standard, and will include 850 m2 office space as well as recreation areas, such as modern gym, sauna, two swimming pools, conference rooms and an auditorium. Delivery of the first vessel will be in June 2015.

The newbuild will be equipped with a heave compensated telescopic gangway at a length of 55.5 meters. In addition, a cargo deck area of 2000 m2, a 120t rig support crane and two supply cranes, will make the vessel highly suitable for cargo handling and construction support.
When finished, the vessel will provide construction support and additional living quarters for support personnel during commissioning, maintenance and decommissioning of offshore installations world-wide. The vessel is also designed for operating in Arctic regions.

The decision of ordering a new monohull accommodation vessel is a result of the successful experience with the company’s existing accommodation vessel, Edda Fides. Since the delivery in March 2011, Edda Fides has proven the capabilities of a mono-hull accommodation design, by successfully completing projects in the North Sea, the Mediterranean and Australia.

“Due to a proven concept and significantly lower investment and operating cost compared to semisubmersible accommodation rigs, the new accommodation vessels will be highly competitive in a market with anticipated fierce competition. We expect the additions to our fleet will enhance our position as a global provider of world-class accommodation services”, says CEO Johan Rokstad.
