For the 269 MW Deutsche Bucht wind farm, DHSS was selected by Van Oord for a call-off helicopter services.
Deutsche Bucht, located approximately 95 kilometres northwest of the island of Borkum, is the third North-Sea offshore wind farm to be built by Canadian power producer Northland Power.
Van Oord was awarded the Balance of Plant contract in 2017 and is responsible for the design engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the foundations, inter array cables and offshore substation, and the transport of the 33 MHI Vestas V164-8.4 MW wind turbines.
Helicopter flights will take off from Den Helder Airport, which is completely utilized as an A1 Offshore Energy heliport, with all facilities and the home base of various helicopter operators.
DHSS is among others facilities situated at Den Helder Airport for 22 years and has recently extended its offices, due to their expected growth in Offshore Wind activities.
