Two design contracts with Eidesvik for hybrid conversion

Breeze Ship Design has signed two design contracts with Eidesvik for hybrid conversion of the platform supply vessels ‘Viking Lady’and ‘Viking Prince’.

Aker BP has together with strategic partners Eidesvik, Solstad Offshore and Simon Møkster Shipping decided to install batteries on three offshore supply vessels operating on long-term contracts with the company. One of the three is Eidesvik’s platform supply vessel ‘Viking Lady’. Eidesvik also sets to invest in a corresponding battery upgrade on its ‘Viking Prince’, which is also currently working for Aker BP.

“We are very pleased to have secured these important contracts as they strengthen our market position for ships in operation when it comes to design of hybrid vessels, and this shows the great potential for significantly reducing emissions from the existing fleet”, says Ove Wilhelmsen – CEO of Breeze Ship Design.
