Spain: ‘Edda Ferd’ Starts Sea Trials

Today, coinciding with the high tide, platform supply vessel Edda Ferd (hull C-444) departed from Gondan shipyard´s facilities, bound for Gijon port to carry out the sea trials.

The vessel is the eighth built by the shipyard for the Norwegian company Ostensjo Rederi and its delivery is scheduled for November 2013.

When delivered, the vessel will be the world’s most environmentally friendly PSV, featuring a new propulsion concept including diesel generator sets with variable rpm developed together with Siemens’ BlueDrive Plus C concept. A hybrid solution with two battery packages further reduces fuel consumption and emissions.

Edda Ferd has the length of 92,60 m, breadth of 20,6 m and can accommodate crew of 40 and has the deck area of 1.000 m2.

The companies behind the Edda Ferd include Astilleros Gondan, Siemens Norway, Skipsteknisk AS, Carl J. Amundsen Consulting Marine Engineers and Naval Architects, and Ostensjo Rederi.
