Acta Marine Provides Vessels for German Oilfield

Acta Marine has been awarded new contracts to provide all supply and support vessels for the Mittelplate Drilling and Production Island. Mittelplate is Germany’s largest oilfield and is located in the Wadden Sea tidelands, a unique and sensitive natural environment.

The implementation of the highest standards by operator RWE-Dea have resulted in more than 20 years of incident-free oil production from this field.

Already for many years Acta Marine have been engaged with providing marine support for Mittelplate. The new charter contracts awarded by RWE-Dea involve a total of five Acta Marine vessels and extend over a period of multiple years. A key element in the new agreements is the upgrade of the fleet of support vessels. This will meet the aim to reduce the number of ship movements and to improve further on the environmental protection.

Two state-of-the-art supply vessels, customly designed for Mittelplate, will replace the three units currently in service. This will result in a 53% reduction of the local impact from air emissions and a 22% reduction of CO2 emissions. More environmental savings are being achieved by applying biocide-free coatings to the underwater hulls of the vessels.

“We are extremely pleased that our long-term client RWE-Dea have entrusted us with these new contracts” says Govert Jan van Oord, Managing Director of Acta Marine. “It confirms our position as leading vessel operator in shallow waters. We are committed to operating in accordance with the highest industry standards and will continue to seek for further improvements”.
