Service operation vessels that have entered service recently and are on order highlight the trend towards designs that combine a high level of operability, low operating costs and logistics innovations
Among the most innovative of service operation vessels (SOVs) currently on order, the Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) newbuild has a number of features that distinguish it from other examples of the type.
Designed by Salt Ship Design in Norway and being built by Cemre Shipyard in Turkey, LDA’s SOV is the subject of a long-term contract with Dong Energy. It will operate on four offshore windfarms off the German coast – Borkum Riffgrund 1 and 2 and Gode Wind 1 and 2 – providing a base for windfarm technicians.
