Eneti announces contract for the construction of next generation offshore wind turbine installation vessel

12 May 2021

Eneti Inc has entered into a binding agreement with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering for the construction of one wind turbine installation vessel. The contract price is US$330m (£233m) and the vessel will be delivered in early Q3, 2024. In addition, the company holds an option to construct an additional vessel at the same price, net of currency adjustments.

The vessel is an NG-16000X design by GustoMSC (a subsidiary of National Oilwell Varco), and includes a 2,600 ton leg encircling crane from Huisman Equipment BV of the Netherlands. The vessel is capable of installing up to 20MW turbines at depths of up to 65 metres of water, and it can be adapted to operate on the alternate fuels of LNG or ammonia.

Eneti Inc is focused on marine-based renewable energy and has invested in the next generation of wind turbine installation vessels.
