Gondan Shipyard announced that yesterday, 17 October, the Edda Ferd PSV departed for Gijon port to carry out sea trials.
The Edda Ferd (hull C-444) Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) features 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.
The companies behind the Edda Ferd include Astilleros Gondan, Siemens Norway, Skipsteknisk AS, Carl J. Amundsen Consulting Marine Engineers and Naval Architects, and Østensjø Rederi.
Edda Ferd PSV built for the Norwegian shipowner Østensjø Rederi was named at Astilleros Gondán S.A. shipyard facilities on September 7th, 2013.
This vessel is the eighth built by the shipyard for the Norwegian company and its delivery is scheduled for November 2013.
