The Viking Princess was the world’s first offshore vessel to replace a traditional generator with a battery hybrid energy storage solution. In November 2021, the vessel will be equipped with a shore power system.
Eidesvik CEO and President Jan Fredrik Meling said: “Viking Princess has enabled Wintershall Dea to achieve substantial reductions in CO2 emissions.”
In addition, Meling will retire on Dec. 31, 2021.
The company has appointed Gitte Gard Talmo as Meling’s successor, effective Jan. 1, 2022. She is currently Eidesvik’s chief commercial officer.
