At Nordic Yards a 390-ton section of a new wind turbine service jack-up vessel was laid down in the Wismar dock today as scheduled, marking a milestone in the building of the 80 x 32 m ship.

The vessel was ordered last year by the Danish company DBB Jack-Up Services for the purpose of servicing offshore wind farms.
 

"We are delighted to be witnessing this major step in the construction of our offshore vessel together with Nordic Yards today", said Thorsten Jalk, CEO at DBB Jack-Up Services. "As experienced service provider for the offshore wind industry we count on vessels which can withstand the most demanding conditions. Nordic Yards has made a strong impression on us as a reliable partner."
 

"For us this high-tech vessel is an important further flagship project for our offshore wind business division. The demand for innovative offshore maintenance vessels will continue to rise in future, and we are in an excellent position to meet its requirements", said Fred Wegener, Senior Vice President Engineering and Production at Nordic Yards.
 

Thanks to its jacking system the vessel can stand on its four legs in depths of up to 45 m. The on-board crane has a lifting capacity to service even the large 5 to 8MW turbines. In addition to DBB Jack-Up Services the well-known Danish ship design firm of OSK Ship Tech also participated in the basic design. Nordic Yard has been responsible for the detailed design of the vessel; the jacking system is supplied by SH Group. The offshore wind service vessel will be ready for delivery in the second quarter of 2014.
