Wiking Helikopter Service GmbH has won a contract to provide helicopter services to crews working on DolWin Gamma, an offshore converter station to be installed by Nordic Yards GmbH 50 kilometres north of the island of Borkum.

The main service will be crew changes to the platform and jack-up vessels on site, the company said.

Flights are expected to begin from mid-June 2017 when the first vessel will be mobilized and last until the completion of the platform installation.

Operations will be conducted from Wiking’s base at the airport of Emden. The company will support this project utilizing Leonardo AW139 and Airbus H145 helicopter, which has been put into Wiking`s operation in early 2017.

The contract follows up the helicopter services Wiking carried out during the installation of the jacket foundation for the converter station in 2016.

The DolWin gamma offshore platform is a key part of the 900MW DolWin3 offshore grid connection system. It is a daughter platform to the DolWin alpha and will be connected to it via a fixed bridge.
