Edda Sun ROV vessel concludes Danish contract
Fugro’s ROV support vessel, Edda Sun, has completed its first inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) contract for a major energy company in the Danish North Sea.
The vessel has now begun a new contract conducting pipeline inspection for an oil and gas operator in the UK North Sea.
Edda Sun’s ROVs can carry out inspections very close to platforms under challenging environmental conditions.
The vessel can accommodate up to 72 personnel and is equipped with a Sikorsky S-92 compatible helideck, a 70T/11m heave compensated knuckle boom deck crane and a large 7.2m² moonpool. Featuring 625m² of free deck space for project use, among the largest in its class, the Edda Sun has two crane-deployed inspection class ROV systems and one hangar-deployed FCV 3000 class ROV system permanently installed. The vessel also has integrated ROV control, online inspection, survey and offline processing/review offices and client offices.
