Siemens Picks SMC as Marine Coordinator for Gemini OWF

Siemens has chosen the UK-based Specialist Marine Consultants Ltd (SMC) to provide offshore Marine Coordination for the 600MW Gemini offshore wind farm off The Nethelands.

SMC started Marine Coordination for the 150 turbine site situated in the Dutch sector of the North Sea, the first of which was installed on 16 February.

The company will be using their ATLAS Marine Coordination Management System – a bespoke tracking and recording system to manage vessels and personnel working on offshore construction projects.

With Gemini being 85km from shore, ATLAS will allow stakeholders remote access to statistics and construction data, SMC said.

Ian Coates, Managing Director at SMC, said: “ATLAS has been developed to work from an offshore base, which gives a strategic advantage to project stakeholders onshore, giving them an immediate snapshot of the critical aspects of construction.”
