GONDAN launches another Commissioning Service Operation Vessel
Today, the launching of another Commissioning Service Operation Vessel for the Norwegian shipowner Edda Wind ASA took place at the GONDAN facilities in Figueras, Castropol, coinciding with the high tide.
This new vessel, designed by Salt Ship Design, also with a length of 88.3m and a beam of 19.7m, will be powered by zero-emission technology and supported with funding from the Norwegian government through Enova SF. Accommodating 120 people – 97 technicians and 23 crew – it will feature state-of-the-art automated equipment, including a 3D offshore crane, an offshore gangway with a 30m outreach and an integrated 26-person capacity elevator.
It is the third in a series of six vessels designed for the transfer of technical personnel for the commissioning and maintenance of offshore wind farms, making GONDAN a world leader in the construction of this type of vessel.
