ULSTEIN DELIVERS OFFSHORE BATTERY CONVERSION

Thursday, December 23, 2021 

The ‘Esvagt Heidi’ (formerly ‘Hermit Prosper’) has been delivered on schedule from Ulstein Verft to offshore operator Esvagt, having completed sea trials and left for Ålesund to test the shore power connection.

Kristian Ole Jakobsen, Deputy CEO Esvagt, said: “Esvagt is very satisfied with the modification of Esvagt Leah and Esvagt Heidi at Ulstein Shipyard, and we appreciate the high-quality workmanship and proactive cooperation with Ulstein Power & Control and Ulstein Shipyard throughout the process for both vessels.”

Per Olav Hansen, Ulstein Power and Control project manager, said: “We were on-board during the sea trial and test, which mark the completion of our first phase of delivery. Our delivery includes the installation of the shore power connection, the installation of the Energy Management (EMS) system, a comprehensive rebuild of the switchboards and changes in the automation systems (Power Management and Integrated Automation). The next phase for us on these projects will be to deliver the battery containers in the spring of 2022. A close collaboration across companies has made this a good project for the whole of Ulstein.”

Tommy Norhagen, project manager Ulstein Verft, said: “This has been an important project for us. We are still in the midst of a pandemic, but we have shown that Ulstein is able to carry out such conversion projects at our own shipyard and to deliver on time.”
