Ems Maritime Offshore scores contract extension with Northland Power

In: Vessels
Northland Power Europe GmbH, the operator of the Nordsee One and Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farms, has chartered the wind farm service vessel WINDEA six from Ems Maritime Offshore GmbH (EMO) for a further five years.

WINDEA six catamaran is 27.5 metres long and equipped with a hydrojet propulsion system. The vessel can reach a speed of up to 32 knots and is capable of transporting 24 technicians and 30 tonnes of freight.

“The extension of the charter contract for the WINDEA six is the result of our outstanding teamwork over the last few years. As local service providers, we are very proud to be able to continue our cooperation with the team from Northland Power",
explained Jan Heyenga, authorised signatory and Head of Maritime Services at EMO.

Northland Power has chartered service vessels from EMO since 2016. The company initially chartered the crew transfer vessel
WINDEA four, and since 2018 also its sister vessel, the WINDEA six, in order to transport service technicians and freight to the offshore wind farm Nordsee One, which lies 40 km north of the Island of Juist.

The ships were developed especially for applications in offshore wind farms. According to the current contract, both crew transfer vessels (CTVs) have been commissioned by Northland Power Europe until 2026 for services from Norddeich.

“Professionalism, reliability and top service - we are very much looking forward to building on our successful partnership with EMO through our positive business expansion. With Northland’s focus on offshore wind and our growth in Europe, we place particular value on positive partnerships. We will continue to rely on this partner who has already faithfully supported us for several years now in the comprehensive management of the wind farm Nordsee One by Northland Power”,
emphasised Florian Würtz, Managing Director of Northland Power Europe GmbH.
