Germany: Nordic Yards Improves its Position in Offshore Platform Sector

Nordic Yards, manufacturer of innovative special ships and major maritime projects, has vacancies for well-trained and qualified skilled staff, particularly but not exclusively in the field of engineering, to work on projects such as the order placed in February by Siemens Energy for a third offshore HVDC platform. Personnel are required to work in particular on project planning, design, construction and quality assurance. In addition, there are also vacancies for certified welding engineers.

“The expansion is logical and also benefits the SylWin project. Now it is a matter of finding good, professional staff,” says Björn Cleven, Personnel Manager at Nordic Yards.

Start of construction of the largest platform of its type is planned for May and will represent a milestone in the development of Nordic Yards. SylWin Alpha is capable of feeding 864 MW of renewable energy into the German power grid and is therefore bigger than the BorWin Beta and HelWin Alpha platforms currently being built.

With the addition of the secondary electrical systems, and the HVAC and fire-fighting packages, the scope of the services provided by Nordic Yards has been considerably enlarged compared with the previous two transformer platforms. The expansion of our activities also results in a corresponding increase in the demands of the project, of the fulfilment of quality assurance criteria and in the staff required to improve our market position.

With this third transformer platform, Nordic Yards must now be considered as the world market leader in the HVDC platform segment – three of the six projects currently awarded will be bearing the label “Made at Nordic in Wismar and Warnemünde”.

Vitaly Yusufov, owner and Managing Director of Nordic Yards: “With these three transformer platforms, we shall be making a considerable contribution to the switch to sustainable energy in Germany. At the same time, our transformation process in a futureoriented market segment has been a de facto success – we are now a ‘real’ special shipyard. Adopting the same active approach as before, we shall be taking part in the coming international tenders for offshore wind platforms and of course for ship projects in our traditional niche market.”
