The godmothers have been Trine Borum Bojsen (Vice-president of the area of QHSE of Wind Power of Ørsted) and Rebecca Goff (Senior Maritime Specialist of Ørsted).
Edda Passat and Edda Mistral (with a length of 81 m and a beam of 17 m) have been specifically designed and built to operate at Ørsted’s wind farms off the coast of the United Kingdom. The first of them will specifically operate at Race Bank wind farm, while the second one at Hornsea 1. They are able to accommodate up to 40 technicians who will perform maintenance tasks at these wind farms, and a crew of about 20 people.
Both vessels are equipped with an UPTIME 23 m length heave compensated “walk-to-work” gangway, a cutting edge 3D compensated crane and a CTV landing system with bunkering facility. In addition to the gangway, the on-board-fitted 11 m daughter craft will allow the safe transfer of maintenance technicians to the offshore wind turbines.
