OMM, Aggreko Finish Amrumbank West Job

Offshore Marine Management (OMM) has completed a contract with Aggreko to support temporary power supply during construction of Amrumbank West Offshore Wind Farm in Germany. 

The contract saw OMM provide vessel management services as well as personnel and offshore logistical support, whereas Aggreko provided offshore modified hardware and offshore certified generator engineers.

Thomas Schmerz, Sector Account Manager – Renewables from Aggreko in Germany, said: “We feel honoured that the offshore wind market once again relies on the world leader in temporary power supply and we are very happy, that we found an experienced and strong partner with OMM, to operate a comprehensive temporary power solution placed on all Transition Pieces in the wind farm. The cooperation with OMM always was very professional and I am looking forward to further collaborations.”   

OMM started work in February this year, prior to completion in early October. Over the course of the contract, OMM completed 46 operations to refuel the temporary generators and supplied approximately 171,000 litres of fuel.

OMM’s scope of work was increased in August to further support Aggreko through the transfer of personnel and performing demobilisation activities. In between jobs, its vessel was on stand-by in Havneby and Esbjerg Denmark.

John Lawton, Director at Offshore Marine Management, said: “Having a vessel on standby meant that we were available to refuel at any time as well as ensured we were able to deliver additional support services at the client’s request.”
