PMR Wins Ostwind 2 Boulder Clearance Work

Danish marine contractor Peter Madsen Rederi (PMR) has been awarded a contract for boulder clearance at the Ostwind 2 grid connection project in the German Baltic Sea.

The contract was awarded by German transmission system operator 50Hertz.

The project comprises boulder clearance and survey works at the three cable routes for the Ostwind 2 grid connection project, which will connect two future offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea, Arcadis Ost 1 and Baltic Eagle, to the German high voltage grid.

The scope of work includes removal of surface boulders between the landfall near Lubmin (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany) and the offshore wind farm sites northeast of the island of Rügen.

This is a major contract for PMR and we are extremely proud that 50Hertz have selected us for the project. We look forward to a close cooperation with this important client,” says Michael Normann, CEO at PMR.

Preparations have already begun and the project will be executed in 2019 following receipt of the necessary consents. PMR will mobilize a number of its own wire crane vessels as well as own multibeam survey equipment for the project. A similar spread has previously been used for other boulder clearance projects at offshore wind farms such as Arkona, Baltic 2, Anholt, Rampion and Westermost Rough.
