Siem Chooses ELA Containers for Wind Farm SOV

Source: ELA Container Offshore

ELA Container Offshore GmbH has delivered two 20-foot offshore multipurpose containers to Siem Offshore Contractors GmbH.

The containers were installed on board the Siddis Mariner, which is currently operating as a walk-to-work service operation vessel (SOV) on the 400MW Bard Offshore 1 wind farm located about 100 kilometres north of the island Borkum in the German part of the North Sea.

The two 20ft offshore containers were designed, manufactured and delivered by ELA as a two-room system. By removing two side walls, a mobile space with a total area of 24m² was created. This design is certified according to DNV 2.7-1.

The containers are equipped as one large changing room with two free-standing clothing racks made of seawater-resistant type 316 stainless steel, which can be used for drying up to 48 work suits as well as 26 double-door lockers for clothing or private items. The dressing room has two benches and a 800 x 800mm A60 window offering an overview of the main deck of the ship.

“The project has once again shown that ELA Offshore can meet customer requirements, develop a solution and implement it within a very short time,” said Hans Gatzemeier, Managing Director of ELA Container Offshore GmbH.

”The containers were mounted on board the ‘Siddis Mariner’, where they were placed in front of the bridge and stacked on top of other containers on a custom made steel foundation.”

Bard Offshore 1 comprises 80 BARD 5.0 MW wind turbines installed at water depths of up to 40 metres.

Ocean Breeze Energy is the owner and operator of the wind farm. Ocean Breeze is in turn 100% indirectly held by UniCredit Bank AG, Munich.
