MPI Offshore is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract to install wind turbines on the Nordsee One Offshore Wind Farm. In a short ceremony held in Hamburg, the contract was signed by representatives from Senvion and MPI.
MPI’s wind turbine installation vessel, MPI Enterprise, will perform offshore transportation and installation of 54 Senvion 6.2M-126 turbines. Operations will take place in waters up to 29-m deep, with work scheduled to commence in early 2017.
Located approximately 40 km north of Juist Island, the wind farm covers an area of about 41 square kilometers and is expected to be operational in late 2017. Nordsee One is owned by Northland Power Inc. (85%) and RWE International SE (15%). MPI Offshore would like to thank the Senvion project team for its open and constructive attitude in working towards this positive outcome and looks forward to starting preliminary work on the project.
MPI’s preparations will ensure smooth and effective execution of the offshore turbine installations next year. We are confident that MPI Enterprise will make a valuable contribution to the realization of the Nordsee One Offshore Wind Farm, a project that will benefit all parties involved and the German offshore-wind industry in general. We wish the vessel and her crew safe and successful operations.
