Wind Energy – SOV
Siemens Gamesa continues on its path to zero emissions by 2040 with commissioning of the new hydrogen-ready Service Operation Vessel Rem Energy.
The REM Energy is almost 90m long and almost 20m wide. It will be the workplace and living quarters for up to 75 offshore service technicians and 24 crew members.
“The REM Energy is setting new standards in terms of occupational safety, sustainability and efficiency,” enthuses Stephan Hauhs, Managing Director of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Deutschland in Bremerhaven.
“With the new SOV, we will be able to optimize the service we are providing for our customers. We will increase the availability of the offshore turbines, thereby reducing the cost of electricity and ensuring more clean energy while increasing the safety for our offshore service technicians.”
“We are taking the first step in getting ready to cut our emissions in offshore service operations. The commissioning of the REM Energy is a strong signal highlighting the availability of clean technology to facilitate operation without emissions,” says Jonas Pagh Jensen, Sustainability Specialist at Siemens Gamesa, and adds: “Governments, industry and investors now need to partner up quickly to ramp up a green hydrogen infrastructure to facilitate the decarbonization of marine shipping.”
The ship was delivered from the Norwegian shipyard Green Yard Kleven on December 3, 2021 and was christened there in mid-November. Siemens Gamesa has chartered the REM Energy for 4 years.
The home port for the service operations will be Bremerhaven. The REM Energy will be deployed in the offshore wind parks Global Tech 1 and Trianel Borkum West.
