Esvagt Dana supports Siemens Gamesa on Baltic 2

In: Windfarms
Esvagt Dana is back at the Baltic 2 offshore wind farm to support Siemens Gamesa during maintenance work. For the next three to six months, the vessel will connect its gangway system to the offshore wind turbines for personnel and equipment transfer.

ESVAGT and Siemens Gamesa have entered into a 95-day agreement with an option of a further three months, heralding the return of
Esvagt Dana to more familiar waters and conditions. The vessel provided support in Baltic 2 from November 2019 to August 2020 when Esvagt Froude, which had been working in the offshore wind farm since Baltic 2 was built, moved on to new tasks in Triton Knoll in the English sector.

"The Baltic 2 offshore wind farm suits the ’Esvagt Dana’ really well and Siemens Gamesa specifically asked whether the ’Esvagt Dana’ was available,"
said Ib Henrik Hansen, Head of Commercial at ESVAGT:

"The waters of the Baltic and the low turbine height make the gangway system on the ’Esvagt Dana’ ideally suited to the work that needs doing there. The cooperation we experienced in the wind farm last time we worked together there was excellent, and we are looking forward to building on from that good experience,"
added Hansen.

Baltic 2 offshore wind farm is located 32 km north of the island of Rügen and covers an area of approximately 27 km². It features 80 Siemens SWT-3.6-120 turbines mounted on monopile foundations which were installed in water depths between 23-44 metres. The project went into operation in October 2015.
