Island Offshore has secured two walk-to-work contracts in the offshore wind sector for the offshore service vessel Island Diligence.
Island Diligence has already started working for Trianel in the German Bight, where she performs walk-to-work operations on the Trianel Windpark Borkum II wind farm.
The vessel has an accommodation capacity of 100 persons including a crew of 23, and a nearly full vessel is expected during the job for Trianel, the Norway-based Island Offshore said. The duration of the contract is approximately four months, plus options. The vessel will be based in Eemshaven in the Netherlands.
The 605MW wind farm, owned by Vattenfall, will be Denmark’s largest after completion at the end of 2021.
Island Diligence will function as an accommodation vessel, in addition to providing gangway services in connection with cable laying activity at the wind farm. The duration of the contract is three months, plus an option for an additional month, and the vessel will be mobilizing in Grimsby, UK.
“We are very pleased to secure long-term work for Island Diligence. It has been a long winter for the crew as the vessel has been in warm lay-up pending new contracts,” said Tommy Walaunet, Managing Director of Island Offshore Management AS.
”I want to commend them for quick and effective mobilization of the vessel. The current customer carried out an HSEQ audit of the vessel with no non-conformities. This proves that the vessel is well kept, with a crew that focus’ on the right things.”
