Ørsted’s New vessel arrives in Grimsby

On Friday 06 August, Ørsted welcomed the arrival of its new SOV, Wind of Hope. Up to 60 of Ørsted’s wind turbine technicians will call the 84-metre vessel home for two weeks at a time, whilst they work out in the North Sea on the world’s largest wind farms.

Wind of Hope has been conducting sea trials as it gets ready to work out at the Hornsea sites. Although primarily intended for use during operations at Hornsea Two, set to become the world’s largest offshore wind farm on completion in 2022, the vessel will first be used at Hornsea One wind farm – the world’s current largest.
