Press release   •   Jun 01, 2017 07:55 CEST

ESVAGT has launched a short video featuring ESVAGT’s unique Service Operation Vessel (SOV) – a proven concept for cost efficient operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms:

For every wind project ESVAGT can provide a SOV solution, purpose-designed to customer requirements; no matter if the SOV should operate in a single wind farm or serve as service operation vessel in a cluster setup. According to customer needs and wishes the vessel can be equipped with Safe Transfer Boats in various sizes, walk-to-work gangway, helipad, cranes above and below deck, ROVs, spare parts storage, workshops, single- or double cabins for technicians, etc. The only “standard” in an ESVAGT SOV solution is that we provide the most qualified and safe operation by a dedicated ESVAGT crew.
