NorSea and Wilhelmsen Ship Management score TenneT offshore wind contract

NSG Wind and Wilhelmsen Ship Management have been awarded a technical maintenance framework agreement by Germany’s TenneT.

The agreement, commencing this year and running through to 2022, will see the two companies provide complete technical maintenance for TenneT’s offshore and onshore transformer stations and AC electricity transmission systems.

Dennis Jul Pedersen, CEO of NSG Wind, commented: “The offshore wind market is moving from niche to being one of the leading sources of renewable energy. Securing this contract enables our companies to deliver services in accordance with the high demands of health and safety standards that TenneT expects.”

Singapore-headquartered Wilhelmsen Ship Management will be undertaking the technical maintenance on components of the grid connection system and will also be responsible for procurement.

“The collaboration between NSG Wind and Wilhelmsen Ship Management is a good combination of best of both worlds. Under this arrangement, NSG Wind will provide its network and project management experience and Wilhelmsen Ship Management will provide the technical maintenance aspect of it. To be part of this huge step towards a sustainable future is momentous to us,” said Carl Schou, president and CEO of Wilhelmsen Ship Management.

NSG Wind and Wilhelmsen Ship Management have been collaborating together since NSG Wind was established in Denmark in 2016.
