Contract award Dong Energy, Borkum Riffgrund
We are happy to announce that SweOffshore has been awarded the contract of supplying the hotel vessel to Dong Energy’s offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund. The mobilization of Regina Baltica started on the 16th of October 2014 in Cuxhaven and was followed by trials and safety drills including helicopter landings offshore. The mobilization was finished with the loading of containers containing tools and equipment in Emden on the 27th of October 2014.
- It is a proud moment for everybody working at SweOffshore that we have been given this opportunity to prove ourselves as the preferred supplier of offshore accommodation to the renewable sector. By supplying the hotel vessel to Dong Energy’s Borkum Riffgrund we will be meeting a new standard of safety and quality in the business, says Anders Nordlund, Chairman of the board, SweOffshore Maritime AB.
Borkum Riffgrund will consist of 78 turbines with a total capacity of up to 312MW, which will be able to supply CO2-free power equivalent to nearly 203,530 German households' annual power consumption. Please visit the project homepage.
