Eneti announced that Seajacks UK Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and a leading provider of installation and maintenance vessels to the offshore wind sector, has signed a contract with an undisclosed client to transport and install turbines.
With mobilization commencing in the second quarter of 2027, the contract will be performed by one of the Company’s two NG16000X Wind Turbine Installation Vessels currently under construction at Hanwha Ocean in South Korea. Inclusive of mobilization and demobilization, the engagement is expected to be between 180 and 210 days and generate approximately USD 73 million to USD 84 million of gross revenue. Project costs are expected to be USD 8 million in aggregate.
Emanuele Lauro, CEO of Eneti, says, “This contract emphasizes our position that market fundamentals remain strong. As with our previous newbuilding contract, we have secured optionality in providing either of our newbuildings to service the contract, which maximizes vessel utilization and generates accretive cash flows. All in all, this contract serves both the needs of our customer and returns required of our shareholders.”
