 Norway's Havyard Ship Technology has delivered the first of three offshore wind service operations vessels to Danish shipping company Esvagt. 

The 83.7-metre vessel is the first of its kind to be manufactured by the oil sector specialist and will be deployed under long-term contracts with Siemens.
 
The vessel is the first of a pair ordered in July 2013 to work under long-term contracts with Siemens on service assignments for offshore wind farms. The second is scheduled for delivery from the shipyard in March this year. Esvagt has also ordered an additional Havyard 832 SOV from the shipbuilder that will be under contract for the Dudgeon windfarm, which is operated by Statoil.
 
Kenneth Pettersen, head of ship technology at Havyard Group said: “Havyard has good references and a strong position in designing, building and fitting out advanced vessels for use in connection with offshore oil production. We have now used this expertise and experience to gain a foothold in the new and exciting renewable energy segment.”
 
Havyard Design & Solutions delivered the design and detailed engineering for production of the vessel while Havyard Power & Systems, was responsible for electrical engineering, automation and alarm systems and bridge.
 
Esbjerg-based Esvagt has a fleet of 39 ships and five newbuilds, including the three vessels under construction at Havyard.
