WIKING Helikopter Service GmbH has announced a multi-year service contract it signed with Global Tech I Offshore Wind GmbH. Under the contract, WIKING will provide personal and material helicopter transport services for the Global Tech I offshore wind farm.

Back in October 2020, the development company issued a tender for helicopter services. WIKING notes that, under this contract, it will carry out helicopter crew change service from its base in Emden with helicopter types Leonardo AW 139 and Airbus H145.

“The Global Tech I team is pleased to welcome the WIKING team as our new helicopter service provider. WIKING convinced us with its high safety and quality standards and customer orientation. We look forward to a successful and long-term partnership”, said Global Tech I Offshore Wind GmbH’s Head of Operational Coordination, Roman Müller.

Global Tech I is one of the first offshore wind farms which to be built in the German North Sea. The roughly 41km2 array is located approximately 140km northwest of Emden in the German Exclusive Economic Zone. It is comprised of 80 AD 5-116 turbines, each with a capacity of 5 MW, mounted on tripod foundations. The project has an installed total capacity of 400 MW and provides power for up to 445,000 households annually. It was officially put into commission late summer 2015. The project achieved an annual utilisation rate of 42.8% in 2019.
