ESVAGT TBN (H-053) - a MPV (Multi Purpose Vessel) for Hess’ oil/gas production in the Danish sector of the North Sea

The latest two new builds for, respectively, the offshore wind and oil and gas sector brings the ESVAGT fleet up to 43 vessels.

Summer holidays are far from ESVAGT's programme as they enter July.

On Wednesday, the new build, ’Esvagt Dana’, was delivered by Zamakona Shipyard in Bilbao, and on Thursday, ESVAGT took ownership of the H-053 new build from Cemre Shipyard in Turkey. This means that ESVAGT starts the summer with two new vessels – both delivered in the same week – and a fleet of 43 vessels in total:

"Two newly built vessels underline ESVAGT’s continued ambition for organic growth within both the offshore wind and offshore oil/gas sectors," says ESVAGT’s CEO, Kristian Ole Jakobsen.

The new builds are a CCV (Crew Change Vessel) that however will start operation as a SOV (Service Operation Vessel), during the summer, and an MPV (Multi Purpose Vessel), which will service Hess’ oil/gas production in the Danish sector. Both vessels will enter charter over the summer.
