Offshore service provider A2SEA has announced that it has secured a contract from E.ON and Statoil to install 60 Siemens 6MW turbines at the Arkona Offshore Wind Farm in the Baltic Sea from summer 2018.
A2SEA will utilise purpose-built offshore installation vessel Sea Challenger for the work.
”We are very proud to be chosen by E.ON to install the Arkona Offshore Wind Farm. The contract cements A2SEA’s position in the installation market as a competent, serious contractor and our experienced crew both onshore and offshore is ready for yet another seamless, well-planned and safe operation. We look very much forward to working with the project team,” said Jens Frederik Hansen, ceo at A2SEA.
E.ON will have responsibility for building and operating the wind farm. Statoil will have a 50-percent stake and be involved in the project from the start.
