Photo of the Day: Vestland Cygnus Reports For Merkur Duty

Service operations vessel (SOV) Vestland Cygnus has arrived at DHSS’ new supply base in the Port of Eemshaven, the Netherlands, where it will mobilize for the Merkur offshore wind farm. 

GE Renewable Energy, the provider of 66 Haliade 6MW wind turbines for Merkur, recently awarded DHSS with a ships agency and port logistics services contract for the wind farm.

The company will carry out the activities beginning mid-February with Vestland Cygnus and involved crew transfer vessels.

The SOV, operated by Norway-based Vestland Offshore, comprises a 100t offshore crane with a range of 40m, as well as an SPS (Special Purpose Ships) class notation. It has the capacity to accommodate 134 persons.

Located some 35km north of the island of Borkum in Germany, the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm is expected to be completed by the end of 2018 and fully commissioned in 2019.
