Nauta Shiprapair Yard launched a partly outfitted service offshore vessel, Esvagt Njord, built for Norwegian client, Havyard Ship Technology. Taking place on January 22, the launching marks Nauta’s first in 2016.

 
The contract for this unit was signed roughly a year ago, and today the ship launched from the slipway B1. Esvagt Njord was built at a rapid pace, simultaneously with other ship construction in Nauta Shipyard – said Ewa Jagielska Director of Marketing in Newbuilding Department in Nauta Shiprepair Yard. 
 
Esvagt Njord is 84 meters long and over 17 meters wide. The unit will operate at Dudgeon wind farm, outside the coast of Norfolk in Great Britain. The ship’s main task will be providing accommodation, carry personnel and equipment for the performance and service maintenance on offshore windmills. 
 
Esvagt Njord has a foreship designed to have good properties in calm as well as rough seas. The stern with twin skegs will improve the performance of the hull and the propellers, and their operating economy. Applied solutions will provide a low-cost and environmentally friendly connection between the wind farm and onshore bases. 
 
Danish company ESVAGT - the vessel operator carry out emergency response tasks, safety training, oil spill response and personnel transport and service for offshore accommodation modules and wind farms. ESVAGT has a fleet of 43 modern ships and additionally five vessels under construction.  
 
Esvagt Njord is the second offshore vessel launched by Nauta Yard. On April 2014 Nauta launched the first unit – a Platform Supply Vessel for SIEM Offshore. Now eight other vessels of different types are under construction in Nauta Yard, four of which are scheduled to be launched this year. Since opening the Newbuilding Department in Gdańsk in 2014, Nauta already has launched eight vessels. Nauta Shiprepair Yard is specializes in building different types of vessels: special support ships, as well as fishing trawlers and research vessels.
