German wind turbine technology specialist Deutsche Windtechnik AG has secured four contracts to provide inspection and maintenance of the balance of plant (BOP) at four offshore wind farms in Dutch waters.
The company will be responsible for monopiles and transition pieces of turbines and substations, both internal and external, at the Gemini Windpark, the Princess Amalia Wind Farm (Prinses Amaliawindpark), the Eneco Luchterduinen and the Hollandse Kust Zuid site, Deutsche Windtechnik said.
Except Hollandse Kust Zuid, which has been under construction as of this spring, the other sites have working wind farms.
The firm’s Dutch unit signed all four contracts over the first three months of 2021, according to the press release.
Deutsche Windtechnik started working at Gemini in March and will stay there for 12 months. The firm’s 18-month contract with Hollandse Kust Zuid will start in July. The job at Princess Amalia and Eneco Luchterduinen will commence this summer and continue for five years.
Deutsche Windtechnik will work out of the port of IJmuiden for the assignments at Princess Amalia, Eneco Luchterduinen and Hollandse Kust Zuid. Inspection and maintenance for Gemini will be done from the client’s DPII vessel operating out Eemshaven.
