EMS Maritime Offshore (EMO) in north Germany has launched its sixth crew transfer vessel and secured a new offshore service supply deal with Hamburg-based Senvion, reports Tom Todd.

The new 27.6m Type Stratcat catamaran Windea Six is being used out of the port of Norddeich to transfer mechanics for maintenance work during the operational phase of the German wind farm Nordsee One. Some 40 km north of the East Frisian island of Juist in the German Bight, it is owned by Northland Power and Innogy.

Wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has erected 54 Type 6.2M126  wind turbines there and Emden-based EMO has been involved with the wind park since Nordsee One’s construction phase in 2015. During that time it has used another of its CTVs Windea Four which transports service technicians and freight.

EMO MD Knut Gerdes said the firm’s special vessels had proven themselves in the special conditions existing in the southern North Sea. He said the new service contract with Senvion for at least three years, and a new contract for Windea Four signed earlier this year and now running up to 2026 should not be taken for granted given the situation in the offshore wind energy sector and market.

The Windea Six was built at Strategic Marine in Singapore and is equipped with four Scania D16076 diesels . It is driven by four Hamilton Waterjets developing a maximum 28 knots. The newbuild can transport up to 24 passengers and a 4-man crew, as well as up to 30 tons of freight.
