Brunvoll announces contract with ESVAGT for propulsion and manoeuvring package on Green Fuel SOV repeat

ESVAGT and HAV Design have selected Brunvoll as the supplier of a propulsion and manoeuvring system for another Service Operations Vessel (SOV). The delivery will be a repeat of the contracted vessel from last year, known as "The world's first green fuel SOV". Both vessels are built by Cemre Shipyard and will enter into a 10-year charter for Ørsted at their U.K East Coast Hub.

VP Sales, Bernt Rune Riksfjord, said this when the first vessel was announced last year; ”This is a breakthrough for Brunvoll in the azimuth thruster propulsion market. ESVAGT and HAV Design are both important players in the renewable segment. We have a long relationship with both, and we are excited that they now also will use our propulsion thrusters. Brunvoll has a strategic commitment to be a preferred vendor for renewable energy vessels with dynamic position capabilities. This contract shows our importance as such a supplier and that the extensive effort placed into developing thrusters for this market has been successful. “

The delivery from Brunvoll consists of a complete propulsion and manoeuvringsystem, including azimuth propulsion thrusters, retractable azimuth thrusters,and a tunnel thruster. Everything will be controlled with Brunvoll's propulsion and thruster control system (BruCon PTC), featuring Brunvoll’s own condition monitoringsystem (BruCon CMS).


ESVAGT is a Danish ship owner and operator specializing in offshore wind and oil & gas industries. ESVAGT has a fleet of over 40 vessels, primarily Emergency Response and Rescue Vessels (ERRVs) and Service Operation Vessels (SOVs). This vessel, designed by HAV Design in Norway, will share the same main particulars as the vessel announced in May last year, with a length overall of 93.0 meters, a breadth of 19.6 meters, a draught of 6.5 meters, and a maximum speed of 14knots.
