UTEC NCS Survey has been awarded a contract for heavy lift support services for the Wikinger offshore wind farm project in the Baltic Sea.
The Wikinger offshore wind farm is located 34 kilometers northeast of the island of Rügen and will generate a total capacity of 350 MW.
Partnering with LDD the contract is to deliver, in January 2016, a pile guide frame monitoring system, which will be used for the installation of approximately 70 foundation pile clusters for the subsequent installation of 4-legged jackets for the Wikinger offshore wind farm.
UTEC NCS will be using the heavy lift/renewables internal software package “Groundbase” to monitor the installations.
Crawford Tennant, Regional Manager EMEA stated: “UTEC NCS is delighted to receive this contract award as it supports our commitment to expanding operations in the heavy lift and windfarm survey support sector whilst also offering broader workscopes with our sister companies.”
