GONDAN Shipyards has just celebrated the launch of the fifth Commissioning Service Operation Vessel (CSOV) for Edda Wind.

With a length of 88.3 meters and a beam of 19.7 meters, the C503 is equipped with zero-emission technology, has the capacity to accommodate 120 people, and is equipped with the most modern and automated equipment. Notable features include a 3D offset offshore crane, an offset offshore walkway with a reach of 30 meters and an integrated lift with capacity for 26 people, making it ideal for complex operations in offshore wind farm maintenance.

This is the fifth in a series of six ships built by GONDAN for Edda Wind. The series consolidates GONDAN as a global leader in the construction of specialized in marine renewable energy sector vessels, underscoring the importance of innovation and sustainability in today's maritime industry. Furthermore, the expansion of GONDAN's facilities not only reflects the company's success and growth but also its ability to adapt and respond to the growing demands of the renewable energy market.
