Vattenfall is looking to award a framework agreement signed with maximum of two contractors for the services related to blade repair on wind farms offshore Germany.

The contract duration is for three years with no options for renewal.

The commencement date is planned for Autumn 2023. The timings are subject to change, according to the notice.

Interested parties have until 2 February to submit their bids.

Vattenfall currently operates the DanTysk and Sandbank offshore wind farms in Germany.

The 288 MW DanTysk offshore wind farm, located some 70 kilometres west of the island of Sylt, comprises 80 Siemens Gamesa 3.6 MW turbines that have been in operation since 2014.

Sandbank offshore wind farm has been in operation since 2017. The wind farm also has a 288 MW capacity and its 72 Siemens Gamesa 4 MW turbines are spinning some 90 kilometres west of Sylt.

Back in September 2022, Vattenfall exercised the step-in right to develop an offshore wind farm at the N-7.2 zone.

Following a final investment decision by Vattenfall, the offshore wind farm could be connected to the German electricity grid sometime in 2027 and when fully developed, would have an output of 980 MW.

Located 85 kilometres off the island of Borkum, the N-7.2 project was originally developed under the name Global Tech II by a consortium led by Strabag SE.
