Jack Up Barge has entered into a contract with Van Oord Offshore Wind for the accommodation and supply of Balance of Plant operations on the Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm.
For the project, Jack Up Barge will deploy its jack-up platform JB-115, which recently completed a similar assignment at the Danish Kriegers Flak wind farm.
Jack Up Barge and Van Oord have worked together on four separate occasions over the past decade on various projects. Van Oord is currently carrying out Balance of Plant activities at the Deutsche Bucht wind farm for Northland Power. The Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm is located in the German Bight, more than 100km from the German mainland. Van Oord is handling the design, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the foundations, the connecting cables and the high-voltage offshore station. Van Oord is also responsible for transporting the wind turbines.
