Helicopter services MHI Vestas offshore wind – Borssele III/IV
DHSS AWARDED A NEW HELICOPTER SERVICES CONTRACT BY MHI VESTAS OFFSHORE WIND FOR BORSSELE III & IV.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has awarded DHSS with a contract to manage helicopter services for crew change during the installation & commissioning phase of wind turbines at the 731,5 MW Borssele III/IV offshore wind project in the Dutch North Sea.
DHSS will be in charge of coordinating the transport of passengers, luggage, and cargo from its logistics hub at Den Helder Airport to the offshore wind project and back.
“This contract award is an example of our solid relationship with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, which is built on trust in the partnership approach, based on mutual expertise and transparency”, says Wim Schouwenaar, CEO of DHSS.
“DHSS has been a valuable partner to MHI Vestas in several operations in the North Sea. We’re comfortable with the logistics and transportation expertise of DHSS and look forward to working with them on the Borssele III/IV offshore wind project,” noted Ole Jacob Wang Nielsen, Head of Offshore Engineering & Aviation at MHI Vestas.
Construction of the Borssele III/IV offshore wind farm, developed by the consortium Blauwwind, started in October 2019, when installation vessel Aeolus commenced with the installation of the monopile foundations. Aeolus will also be the installation vessel for the turbines.
Borssele III/IV offshore wind farm is located 23km from Vlissingen in the Dutch Exclusive Economic Zone and comprises 77 V164-9.5 MW turbines, supplied by MHI Vestas, installed on monopile foundations. When fully commissioned, the project will produce enough power to supply around 825,000 Dutch households with renewable electricity.
