Loipart finished the installation of the complete galley/ mess room areas onboard Edda Freya.

Edda Freya is designed by Salt Ship Design in close cooperation with Östensjö rederi and DeepOcean. Loipart awarded the contract for galley and mess room areas, a turnkey contract including equipment delivery and installation.


With a length of 149.8 metres, a width of 27 metres and 2300 square metres of total deck space the vessel will be a powerful tool in the offshore construction market. The vessel is equipped with a 150 tons dual tensioner vertical lay system (VLS) located in the moon pool, a 3000 tons carousel below deck and a 400 tons active heave compensated (AHC) knuckle boom main crane that can lift 600 tons in double fall mode.
The ship will be delivered with a new diesel electric hybrid propulsion system. The system (Siemens BlueDrive+C) is developed by Siemens in cooperation with Østensjø Rederi. By using variable rotational speed with optimal operation of the diesel generator in combination with batteries, the system will significantly reduce fuel consumption and the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and greenhouse gasses (CO2/methane).
