Normand Jarstein to Work on First German Offshore Wind Farm

Solstad Offshore is set to deploy accommodation and walk-to-work vessel Normand Jarstein at the Alpha Ventus offshore wind project in Germany.

The vessel, mobilized with an Ampelmann E 1000 motion compensated gangway, is ready to operate for Siemens Gamesa and Adwen on what is the first German offshore wind farm.

According to AIS data, Normand Jarstein is currently located in the Port of Esbjerg, Denmark.

Alpha Ventus comprises six Adwen M5000 turbines and six Senvion 5M turbines located 45km north of the island of Borkum in the North Sea.

The 60 MW offshore wind farm recently celebrated 10 years of operations.

It is owned by EWE with a 47.5% stake, and RWE and Vattenfall each with a 26.25% share.
