Deutsche Offshore Consult (DOC) has secured a contract extension from Ocean Breeze Energy to manage vessels working at the Bard Offshore 1 wind farm in the German North Sea.
The contract which covers a period from 2016 to 2017, follows a similar deal at the wind farm in 2015.
The work will cover management of special-purpose vessels being used by Ocean Breeze Energy.
The contract will also cover the evaluation of offshore logistic concepts and negotiation of charter contracts, deck layout and collision analysis and mobilization and demobilization management.
“The order by Ocean Breeze Energy is a positive assessment of the work accomplished to date in 2015 by DOC and we take pride in this contract because it represents a vote of confidence in our company. Vessel assessments and concepts are often not considered sufficiently such as transfer systems, material logistics, crane works, crew accommodations and offices represent some of the numerous selection criteria that are particularly important to provide optimum prerequisites for efficient as well as safe working conditions of the service teams,” said Oliver Spalthoff, managing director at DOC.
