January 18 (SeeNews) - Helicopter operator CHC Group (OTCMKTS:HELIQ) on Tuesday said it has been contracted by Siemens Wind Power GmbH to provide helicopter services in support of the construction of the 402-MW Veja Mate offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

Flights under the contract started in the beginning of January from the company's base in Den Helder, the Netherlands, using AW 139s.

CHC has previously supported Siemens in the construction of the 600-MW Gemini offshore wind off the Dutch coast, completing its nine-month involvement in that project in October 2016.

Veja Mate will use 67 Siemens turbines of 6 MW each.
