Energy logistics provider Peterson today said it has won two 6-year logistics support contracts for the 402-MW Dudgeon offshore wind park off the coast of North Norfolk in England.
The deals involve the provision of comprehensive logistics services such as stevedoring, ship agency services, provisions delivery and transportation of personnel, as well as fuelling services from Peterson’s facility in Great Yarmouth.
The offshore wind farm is to be commissioned in 2017. It is owned by Norway’s Statoil ASA (NYSE:STO) and Statkraft and Abu Dhabi’s Masdar. The park will use 67 Siemens turbines of 6 MW each.
Peterson said it helped with the barge load-out of the 1,800-tonne substation for the wind farm in Lowestoft in July. The company provided 12 of the 72 self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs) axles required for this operation.
The substation topside for Dodgeon, built by Sembmarine SLP, sailed out of Lowestoft several days ago.
Once operational, Dudgeon will sell power under a Contract for Difference (CfD) secured in 2014.
