GONDAN Shipbuilders Marks Dual Milestones: The Delivery of ‘Edda Nordri’ and Launch of CSOV C492
GONDAN Shipbuilders is pleased to share two significant milestones: the successful delivery of the vessel Edda Nordri and the launching of our newly CSOV C492. In addition to these achievements, our expanded facilities are actively engaged with a strong workload, including a Buoy Tender Vessel for Scotland, an advanced USV for Norway, and eco-friendly electric ferries for Portugal.
Delivery of Edda Nordri took place in the Port of El Musel in Gijón, where its naming ceremony was also held. The naming ceremony was graced by the presence of ladysponsor Tone Lunde Bakker, CEO of Eksfin (Export Finance Norway) as well as the Board of Directors and the management of Edda Wind and Østensjø Rederi.
Following the ‘Edda Nordri’ celebration, the C492 was officially launched at GONDAN main facilities in Castropol, Asturias. This new CSOV -the fourth of the 6 vessels series ordered by Edda Wind- is a product of collaborative efforts, detailed craftsmanship, and our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of the maritime industry.
With enhanced production capabilities, our expanded facilities are set to further our tradition of delivering reliable and innovative vessels. We are actively managing the construction of 6 Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs), emphasizing our expertise in the specialized vessel segment. Moreover, we’re entrusted with crafting a buoy handling vessel for the Northern Lighthouse Board of Scotland. Our collaboration with renowned maritime players Østensjø Rederi, Solstad, and Deep Ocean has resulted in our involvement in the development of an advanced USV, uncrewed surface vessel. Additionally, our commitment to sustainable maritime solutions is shown as we’re currently building 10 fully electric ferries for Transtejo-Soflusa in Portugal, marking a significant step towards eco-friendly transportation.
We express our gratitude to everyone who has been a part of these projects and to those who continue to trust and collaborate with GONDAN Shipbuilders.
