EMS Maritime Offshore extends contract with Nordsee One

Nordsee One GmbH is counting on a long-term collaboration with EMS Maritime Offshore (EMO), based in Leer/Emden. On 31/08/2018, EMO signed an extension of its charter contract for MS ‘Windea Four’ with Nordsee One GmbH until 2026. The specialist vessel was developed for use in offshore wind farms and has been outstandingly successful. What made this occasion even more special is that it coincided with the christening of her sister ship MS ‘Windea Six’. EMO’s crew transfer vessel (CTV) ‘Windea Four’ has already been working for the wind farm operator Nordsee One GmbH out of Norddeich since June 2016. The ship transports service technicians and freight to the wind farm of the same name, ‘Nordsee One’, 40 km to the north of the island of Juist. The owners of the wind farm are Northland Power with an 85% share and innogy with 15%.

Sixth catamaran christened for Ems Maritime Offshore

EMO supplies a crew transfer vessel for the operational phase of offshore wind farm ‘Nordsee One’ EMS Maritime Offshore GmbH (EMO) marked the occasion of Harbour Day in Leer by christening the new addition to its fleet, the crew transfer vessel (CTV) ‘Windea Six’, in the harbour. Member of the German Parliament Gitta Connemann was delighted to assume the honour of christening the ship, especially in her hometown of Leer. When asked how one could become a ship’s godmother, Connemann said: “You mustn’t have red hair like a ship’s kobold.” But a kobold must have stowed away somewhere, for the champagne bottle only burst on the second attempt. EMO has been working for the ‘Nordsee One’ wind farm with MS ‘Windea Four’ since the start of the construction phase in 2015; the Emden-based company has now secured a contract with the operator Senvion GmbH from Hamburg to provide a CTV during the wind farm’s operational phase. EMO has therefore added a catamaran from the Strategic Marine shipyard in Singapore to its fleet. ‘Windea Six’ will go into service out of Norddeich for at least three years, starting immediately.
