C-Ventus has been awarded a four year contract by innogy for subsea works at Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm in the German sector of the North Sea.
The contract will see the company conduct annual ROV inspections of the wind farm infrastructure as well as follow-up and remediation works as and when required.
Hans Reinigert, managing director C-Ventus, said: “We are extremely pleased to be awarded this contract as it is in line with our strategy to enter into long term arrangements directly with the operators of offshore wind farms whereby we can provide not only the subsea services but the entire O&M scope, including performance of all ‘above waterline’ works and the supply of suitable crew transfer vessels (CTV’s).
“With The Netherlands and Belgium considered our home-bases and after setting up an office in the United Kingdom, our focus is very much on Germany and we are convinced that this contract will accelerate further growth in the German sector .”
The Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm, operated by innogy, is located approximately 30 kilometers north of the island of Heligoland.
Its 48 wind turbines generate sufficientelectricity to supply approximately 320,000 households.
