RWE has awarded a contract to DHSS for logistics at the Port of Eemshaven during the installation phase of its 342 MW Kaskasi offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.
Under the contract, DHSS will support RWE with regard to vessel agency services, port logistics, and storage.
Services will be managed from the DHSS support base in Eemshaven.
“With our set-up we are able to unburden the client during the project with a complete scope of required logistical services, delivered by one party,” said Wim Schouwenaar, CEO of DHSS.
“While the offshore teams can focus on their tasks at the wind farm site, our experts assist with all kind of logistics of cargo and persons, in order to have a flawless execution of the construction of the wind farm.”
A few days ago, the offshore substation topside was installed on its monopile foundation by the heavy lift, DP 2 installation vessel Gulliver, operated by DEME’s subsidiary Scaldis Salvage & Marine Contractors.
Also, the first monopile was recently installed at the Kaskasi offshore wind farm. The work is being carried out by Seaway 7’s Seaway Strashnov vessel.
Kaskasi is RWE’s sixth wind farm off the German coast and is being built 35 kilometres north of the island of Heligoland.
The wind farm will comprise 38 Siemens Gamesa wind turbines, each with an output of up to 9 MW. Installation of the wind turbines is scheduled to start this summer.
RWE, together with Siemens Gamesa, will also equip a number of wind turbines with recyclable rotor blades.
Once all wind turbines are fully operational in the fourth quarter of 2022, Kaskasi offshore wind farm will supply the equivalent of approximately 400,000 households with green electricity.
