EnBW Looks QC and HSE Coordinator for EnBW Baltic 2 (Germany)

EnBW is looking for QC and HSE coordinator for offshore Observer during the installation and the Health and Safety Coordination for Construction Site for the Baltic Sea offshore wind farm “EnBW Baltic 2 “.

These services are divided into 3 lots: Lot 1: HSE coordination; Lot 2: QC-ordination; Lot 3: Offshore Observer of offshore installations.

Lot 1 comprises further the safety and health coordination (Co-SiGe) for construction regulation and is thus part of the reporting chain and safety coordination. In order to minimise the staff effort, it is planned to provide a small group of people and synergy effects used by ensuring within the framework of site supervision and QC monitoring, including monitoring of the HSE and vice versa.

About EnBW Windpark Baltic 2:

EnBW Baltic 2 is four times as big as EnBW Baltic 1 – and generates six times as much electricity. That sets requirements regarding planning and logistics in every respect.

Wind farm will be located in Baltic Sea, 32 km north of the island Rügen.

The depth of the sea varies between 23 and 44 meters. Depending on this depth, the installations are mounted either on steel piles, so-called monopiles (up to 35 meters deep) or steel-framework-structures, so-called jackets (starting from a depth of 35 meters).

With a yearly output of about 1.2 billion kWh EnBW’s Wind park Baltic 2 is able to provide electricity for about 340,000 households per year. By this, 900,000 tons CO2 can be saved.
