CBED and Wind Innovation Stay Offshore Germany

Offshore wind service provider CBED has secured a new contract with the owner of the DanTysk and Sandbank offshore wind farms in the German North Sea which will see the company’s walk-to-work (W2W) service operation vessel (SOV), Wind Innovation, deployed at the two wind farms throughout 2023.


Wind Innovation is already working on the two wind farms under a contract active for the remainder of 2022.

The 1999-built accommodation vessel will again use the Port of Esbjerg, Denmark as base port for crew change and loading of fresh supplies throughout the project period.

For the scope of the procurement, DanTysk Sandbank Offshore Wind, a joint venture between Vattenfall Europe Windkraft GmbH and Stadtwerke München GmbH, required a Walk-to-Work vessel which was equipped with DP2, gangway capabilities, and which at the same time, met all technical and HS requirements, CBED said.

For this specific project, the offshore operations will benefit from the adjustable pedestal gangway, allowing the flexibility of connecting Wind Innovation to transition pieces of different heights across the two involved wind farms.

Wind Innovation can operate as low as 11,95 m (LAT) from the lowest operation level up to 26,45 m (HAT) from the highest operating level, CBED said.

Daniel Alon, General Manager, CBED, said: ”Following a positive project opening, we are excited to extend our collaboration and offer comfortable living onboard Wind Innovation for the service teams for a prolonged period. In fact, this new contract marks CBED’s 30th offshore wind assignment and also on this occasion we expect our joint operations to contribute to CBED’s collective and unparalleled offshore experience.”
