June 2013 – March 2014
During the construction of the Northwind offshore windfarm, a number of MPI and Vroon vessels have been employed on this project. The windfarm, situated off Zeebrugge in Belgium, consists of more than 70 offshore wind turbines, providing 216 MW, enough power for 120,000 households.
MPI Resolution, one of our wind turbine installation vessels, was engaged in the installation of wind turbines on the site.
Five MPI Workboats (MPI Cardenio, MPI Don Quixote, MPI Rosinante, MPI Rucio and MPI Sancho Panza) have also been working on the project, transferring personnel from Oostende.
In addition, Vroon Offshore Services’ VOS Sympathy has carried out subsea-support duties and “walk-to-work” activities by means of the Ampelmann (actively compensated) gangway installed on deck.
We are proud of our contributions to this prestigious project and successful operation.
