At the beginning of August, ESVAGT took the opportunity to invite visitors in for a sneak preview behind the facade of their new, almost completed, premises during the Tall Ships Race in Esbjerg.

Employees, founders of ESVAGT, Danish customers and tradesmen working on the building we all invited to bring their families along and visit both ESVAGT and the Tall Ships Race. 700 guests came by on the day – causing quite a queue at the ice-cream van!

Although ESVAGT’s new premises weren’t entirely finished on the day, guests gained a good impression of the new settings and quite a bird’s eye view of the beautiful ships and crowded quayside from ESVAGT’s rooftop terrace.

ESVAGT is a dedicated provider of safety and support at sea, founded on an experienced and well-trained offshore crew and unmatched rescue capabilities.

We support the offshore Oil & Gas industries with a wide range of specialized services: Standby, Emergency Response and Resque Vessels (ERRV), Oil spill response, Firefighting, Tanker assists, Rig moves, Supply services and Interfield transfer of cargo and personnel.

In 2010, ESVAGT brought the dedicated offshore wind Service Operation Vessels (SOV) to the market. The SOVs provide accommodation for up to 40 technicians, storage for small turbine parts and a workshop, plus personnel and equipment transfer capabilities by either Walk-to-Work gangway system or Safe Transfer Boats.

ESVAGT was founded in 1981 and has a fleet of more than 40 vessels and more than 900 employees on- and offshore.
