Northland Power Europe has extended the charter contract for the wind farm service vessel WINDEA Six with Ems Maritime Offshore (EMO) for a further five years.
Northland Power chartered WINDEA Six in 2018 to transport service technicians and freight to the Nordsee One offshore wind farm, located 40 kilometres north of the Island of Juist in the German sector of the North Sea. Prior to that, the operator of the Northland Deutsche Bucht and Nordsee One offshore wind farms had already chartered WINDEA Four.
Both vessels have now been commissioned by Northland Power Europe until 2026 for services from Norddeich, as the contract for WINDEA Four was extended in 2018.
The WINDEA Six catamaran is 27.5 metres long and equipped with a hydrojet propulsion system. The vessel can reach a speed of up to 32 knots and is capable of transporting 24 technicians and 30 tonnes of freight.
The 332 MW Nordsee One offshore wind farm, which comprises 54 Senvion 6.2M126 turbines, started commercial operation on 21 December 2017.
