Deutsche Windtechnik and Vattenfall enter long-term agreement to continue their service cooperation for the DanTysk offshore wind farm

Bremen - Deutsche Windtechnik Offshore and Consulting and Vattenfall expand their cooperation for the DanTysk offshore wind park (OWP): starting at the end of June, 2015, the independent service specialist now also maintains and inspects all transition pieces (TP) and foundations above and below the water level of the 80 Siemens® plants (SWT-3.6-120). The four-year contract also includes maintenance tasks for the offshore substation (OSS), the accommodation platform and the cranes.

Deutsche Windtechnik has been involved in the large \"DanTysk\" project ever since the first construction phase in 2012: Starting with monitoring construction and production for the blades, nacelles and towers, in 2014 the company developed the service concept for the OSS and managed its commissioning. This was followed by the development and implementation of an emergency electricity concept as well as maintenance and troubleshooting deployments on the work platform\'s cranes. In addition to maintaining and inspecting the TPs, foundation, accommodation platform and the OSS, the newly negotiated contract also includes maintenance of the hydraulic cranes and the latchway systems. Two teams each carry out these tasks in 14-day cycles. The deployments are managed by Esbjerg, Denmark in terms of logistics.

New offshore milestone reached
\"This agreement is a further milestone in our offshore business: Together, we were able to merge the skills of the contracting parties that emerged over the last few months and orientate our cooperation for the long-term and bindingly. Vattenfall has the right maintenance concept, into which we fit perfectly with our flexible project management and special expertise. \"The result is very beneficial for both sides\", says Carl Rasmus Richardsen, CEO of Deutsche Windtechnik Offshore und Consulting GmbH, about the deal.

Also offshore: Creating added value through synergies
Matthias Brandt, Director Deutsche Windtechnik AG, is already thinking ahead: \"Our offshore business development is already exceeding expectations. Not only were we able to combine our onshore know-how with the required offshore skills – with DanTysk, we are now managing Denmark\'s second offshore wind park in addition to Butendiek. Thanks to the regional proximity and the overlap of tasks, in future numerous synergies in the areas of logistics, remote monitoring, material and deployment planning can be expected. We will be able to increasingly benefit from this across projects for additional, new, exciting tasks in OWPs.\"

Offshore wind park Dan Tysk
OWP DanTysk, a joint venture between Vattenfall (51%) and Stadtwerke München (49%), is one of the first major marine wind farms built in the German North Sea. After its completion in the spring of 2015, DanTysk was inaugurated on 30 April 2015. With a total of 80 wind turbines, DanTysk supplies up to 400,000 households with green energy.
