NorSea Wins Sprogø O&M Deal

NorSea Wind has secured a contract for the operation and maintenance (O&M) of the Sprogø offshore wind farm in Denmark.

The Norway-based company said it commenced the work on 1 January 2019, after winning the contract through a tender procedure.

According to NorSea, the contract sets a milestone for offshore wind supply as it represents one of the first where a complete O&M agreement is offered to a third party supplier.

“The competence of our employees empowers us to believe that we can save on the maintenance costs for the 7 WTGs,” said NorSea Wind CEO Dennis Jul Pedersen.

The Sprogø offshore wind farm comprises seven V90-3MW Vestas wind turbines located in the Great Belt strait between the islands of Zealand and Funen.

The 21MW project, owned by European Energy Group, was officially commissioned at the end of 2009. A crew transfer vessel (CTV) destined for the wind farm is currently being constructed by Valling Ship Solution.
