MPI Contractors to service Prinses Amaliawindpark
MPI Contractors will provide offshore transport and lifting services during main component replacements planned for wind turbines in the Prinses Amaliawindpark.
The company has signed a five-year contract with Eneco Windmolens Offshore, during which time it will mobilise one of its wind turbine installation vessels (WTIVs) for two planned campaigns per year at the Eneco-owned wind park. Operations will involve the exchange of main components, such as gearbox, generator, transformer, blade and/or blade bearing.
The services will be provided as an all-weather inclusive turnkey operation at the farm, situated 23km off the north-west of IJmuiden, the Netherlands. The scope of the project includes initial design and provision of sea fastenings and grillages, plus all engineering and project management. These aspects will be handled by MPI Consultants Ltd.
Effective from 1 January, the agreement includes options to extend for a further three and two years.
Prinses Amaliawindpark entered production in July 2008. The farm consists of 60 Vestas V80 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 2MW. It generates around 422GWh of sustainable electricity per year.
MPI has previously completed the exchange of two gearboxes and two generators at E.ON’s Amrumbank and Robin Rigg OWFs.
