MPI Workboats has been awarded two long-term contracts with Statoil on the Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm. MPI Napoleon and MPI Snowball will provide crew-transfer support, with the first vessel having commenced her 18-month contract earlier this month. The second vessel will start a three-year contact later in 2016.

The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is a GBP 1.5 billion project that will harness offshore wind to power more than 410,000 U.K. homes. This 402MW offshore wind farm, to be located some 20 miles off the North Norfolk coast, will be developed and operated by Statoil and should start generating electricity in early 2017.

Contracts were signed in a ceremony held in Bergen, Norway last month, which was attended by MPI Workboats’ General Manager, Leslie Robertson.
