Purus Wind and VARD selects Brunvoll as supplier of CSOV propulsion and manoeuvring packages

Brunvoll has received an order for the delivery of propulsion and manoeuvring packages for Purus Wind's new Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOV). The delivery is for two vessels, with two additional vessels as an option.

“We are humble and proud that Vard and Purus Wind have chosen Brunvoll as their trusted partner for these newbuilds. I would especially like to thank the Vard organization for working very closely with our people during these projects, demonstrating the strength of the maritime cluster in the region. The offshore wind market will be an important segment for Brunvoll in the coming years, and with these additions to our orderbook we already have good visibility for factory utilization in 2024," says Kåre Øyvind Vassdal, CEO of Brunvoll.

Each vessel will be outfitted with two azimuth thrusters for propulsion, and two retractable azimuth thrusters and a tunnel thruster for manoeuvring. The scope of supply features also Brunvoll’s Propulsion and Thruster Control system, BruCon PTC.

The propulsion thrusters feature the latest and greatest improvements to meet the increasingly stricter requirements for rapid, safe, and accurate DP operations for SOVs/CSOVs. This includes significantly improved azimuth rotation speed, increases propeller acceleration/deceleration, and arrangements for increased thrust efficiency in terms of reduced thruster and hull interaction.

Combined with the two retractable azimuth thrusters and the tunnel thruster in the bow, the vessels should be ideally equipped with regards to the operational requirements, DP accuracy, and overall performance.

The vessels, which are of VARD 4 19 design, will be approximately 87 x 19,5 meters with a capacity of 120 persons. The design is optimized for low fuel consumption, high operability, and comfort.

Delivery of the vessels will be in Q2 2025 and Q2 2026.The first vessel will be delivered from one of VARD’s yards in Norway. The other vessel will be built by VARD Vung Tau in Vietnam. The two options are also planned to be built both in Norway and Vietnam.

Vard about the contract with Brunvoll: “The close collaboration between maritime players in a maritime cluster, with the yards as the hub, has been the catalyst for improvements and innovation for more than a century. Requiring relationships based on trust and longevity far beyond your standard contract. These liaisons are crucial to manage the risks involved in prototyping and enabling sustainable business at sea. Whilst – at the same time, delivering vessels on world leading construction times, at agreed cost, and with the required worldwide support after delivery.

The chosen solution in this project is an optimalisation from both Vard Design and Brunvoll, and they will give better operability and lower emissions. In VARD we have focus on our partnerships, and with Brunvoll it dates back more than 80 years.” says Runar Vågnes, SVP Sales & Marketing in VARD.
