A stable growth in the wind market ensures ESVAGT a satisfactory result for 2021
Financial statements: Growth in the European offshore wind segment; delivery of two newly built wind ships and an improvement of the ERRV market in the North Sea gave ESVAGT a satisfactory 2021. Optimism for further growth in 2022.
ESVAGT managed to adapt to the challenging market conditions of 2021 and delivered progress on both top and bottom line for the year.
“With a turnover of almost DKK 1.1 billion and a revenue increase of approx. 10% compared to 2020, as well as an annual result of DKK 151 million, 2021 was a satisfactory year for ESVAGT”, says CFO Sisse Mai, ESVAGT.
“2021 offered a great variety of challenges, where Covid-19 still had a great impact, but despite that, we were able to navigate satisfactorily. We seized the opportunities and adapted to the changes that came, and on that basis, we can look back on 2021 positively”, she says.
In 2021, ESVAGT expanded its position as market leader in offshore wind with the delivery of two more newly built SOV’s; Esvagt Alba’ and ‘Esvagt Havelok’ for Vestas in respectively Belgium and England.
Likewise, a comprehensive contract with TotalEnergies in the Danish sector meant that ESVAGT could add the Multipurpose ERRV vessels Esvagt Leah’ and ‘Esvagt Heidi’ to the fleet.
The reduction of the ERRV segment, which was recognized in 2020, was reversed in 2021 and has thus contributed positively to the annual result for 2021
The expectations for the coming year are positive, the full-year effect from the newly arrived vessels combined with a strong oil & gas market will ensure ESVAGT a further boost in both the revenue and EBITDA for 2022.
