Wind Turbine Service Jack-up Order for Nordic Yards

Press Release
Friday, August 17, 2012

Northern Germany's Nordic Yards contracted by Denmark's DBB Jack-up Services to construct a Wind Turbine Service Jack Up Vessel (WTSJUV).

The production of the vessel will be carried out at the yards in Rostock-Warnemünde and Wismar and will take approximately one year. Start of construction is planned for spring 2013, delivery scheduled for spring 2014. Additionally, there is an option for the construction of two more vessels.

This special vessel commissioned from Nordic Yards will be used for servicing offshore wind turbines and is able to work under the most challenging conditions.

It will be 80 metres long, 32 metres wide and has a novel jack-up system. I.e. the vessel can be set up for its work at sea on four lifting legs and replace the heaviest wind turbine components at a height of up to 100 metres with the on-board crane.

The vessel is suitable for maintenance works at a water depth of up to 45 metres and has, due to its legs, a stable stand.

DBB Jack-Up Services A/S developed the concept of the special vessel based on its experiences with the self-elevating Jack-Up Vessel M/V Wind.

"Nordic Yards has already proven to be a strong, competent partner in the offshore field," explains Thorsten Henrik Jalk, CEO of DBB Jack-Up Services A/S. He continues: "As a leading provider of services and equipment in the offshore wind industry, we need vessels which can also work under the toughest weather conditions on the high seas.
