ØSTENSJØ REDERI AS

Edda are well known for developing and operating advanced platform ships, and have had two ships on charter to Shell out of Aberdeen for as long as anyone can remember, by 2009 Shell had chartered the new Edda Fram, which has a revolutionary bulk handling system, and is powered by a Voith Schneider system.

They operate escort tugs in Southampton and in Norway.

During the latter part of the first decade of the 21st century they provided a ship on which was installed a set of portacabins, and this "passenger ship" operated in support of the Bonga project in West Africa. This has caused the company to take steps in the direction of accommodation vessels, and now have an accommodation vessel about to enter service (April 2010).

Edda have continued to improve their fleet, and have two vessel with Voith Schneider propulsion, and the propulsion system seems accidentally to have improved the seakeeping qualities of the vessels. The Edda Fides is also in service, and has a safety case compiled by Marex Marine Services of Aberdeen.

At the 2014 review there appear to have been no increases to the fleet, however the now venerable Edda Sprint has departed. Another accommodation has been ordered and is being built in Hayundai.

Comments I'm not quite sure how things stand with Edda tugs. Thorax if it is still owned may be the largest of their fleet. 2014 this tug still appears to be part of the fleet.
