Van Oord scores four year contract with Vattenfall

In: VesselsWindfarms
Van Oord has been awarded a four year Operations & Maintenance (O&M) contract by Vattenfall. Working through its MPI Offshore organisation, Van Oord will provide jack-up and associated lifting services for main component exchanges across Vattenfall’s portfolio of offshore wind farms.

The contract includes planned and unplanned maintenance campaigns for approximately 600 Vattenfall wind turbine generators (WTGs). Both parties have the option of extending the contract for another year.

"Van Oord is a trusted partner that can help us improve our O&M activities even further. Guaranteed availability of jack-ups for main component exchanges will ensure faster response times and ultimately reduce downtime and lost revenue. We look forward to extending our relationship and will continue working together to achieve Vattenfall’s ambition of making fossil-free living possible within one generation,"
said Catrin Jung, Head of Offshore Wind Vattenfall.

In 2018, UK-based MPI Offshore became part of Van Oord. The company has supported O&M across Vattenfall's portfolio of offshore wind farms in Europe for a number of years. Offshore installation vessel
MPI Resolution will be the main vessel executing the works.

Vattenfall operates 10 offshore wind farms in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. During the contract period, its offshore portfolio will be extended to 622 turbines with a combined capacity of 2.6 GW.
