The Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) has recently embarked on a significant venture by securing a contract to construct a hybrid-electric Service Operation Vessel (SOV) for North Star Shipping. This vessel, integral to the operations at the He Dreiht offshore wind farm in Germany, represents a major step towards sustainable and green energy solutions. Designed by VARD AS, Norway, the SOV features innovative technology like a fully electric cycloidal propulsion system, a 3D motion compensated gangway, and a significant focus on reducing emissions. Scheduled to start its charter by the end of 2025, the vessel is poised to not only bolster CSL’s reputation in shipbuilding but also contribute significantly to the global renewable energy sector. This project aligns with the increasing global emphasis on sustainable energy development, showcasing CSL’s commitment to environmentally conscious solutions in the maritime industry.
