Siemens begins charter of WIND SERVER
Horsens, Denmark, March 14, 2016
DBB Jack-Up Services A/S announced today that Siemens is beginning a three-year charter agreement for DBB Jack-up’s new purpose-built jack-up vessel, WIND SERVER. Delivered to Siemens today, the vessel will be part of an important initiative to service the rising number of large-scaled offshore wind power projects across Northern Europe.
“We are very pleased to add this highly innovative, purpose-built superior jack-up vessel to our service fleet. It will allow us to keep the vessel ready for fast mobilization, reducing the required lead time for projects,” says René Cornelis Wigmans, Head of Maritime & Aviation Solutions Siemens Wind Power Service who adds: “The addition of Wind Server to our fleet represents our unrelenting approach in reducing the cost of offshore wind energy and underscores our lasting commitment in developing and offering efficient offshore wind service solutions for our customers.”
Constructed at Nordic Yards in Germany, WIND SERVER is purpose-built for maintenance and service operations. Thorsten Jalk, CEO of DBB Jack-Up Services says:
“We are delighted to deliver our new vessel to Siemens and to commence this charter agreement, as announced two years ago. Enabling efficient asset utilization and shared logistics between offshore wind power projects, the new vessel will play an important role in helping to reduce the levelised cost of energy (LCoE).”
The commencement of the charter agreement will be celebrated at a launch event at Siemens in Brande, Denmark on 12 April.
