Rhenus Completes Wikinger Supply Runs

OrbisEnergy tenant, Rhenus Offshore Logistics has concluded its first contract in the Baltic Sea after completing 15 supply runs to Iberdrola’s Wikinger offshore wind farm.

The logistics services provider handled the continuous support for the 350MW project, including agency services and coordination in the port, making available the platform supply vessel (PSV) and the bunker equipment, as well as renting the containers.

Between 19 September 2016 and 11 March 2017, Rhenus supplied the offshore platform at the wind farm with containers, which were loaded with food, tools, spare parts and other materials, as well as fresh water and diesel fuel. Rhenus also handled the complete coordination work for all the interfaces and made available containers, fresh water and diesel fuel.

The company also coordinated the platform supply vessel at the supply port, Mukran Port in Sassnitz on the island of Rügen, through its own local agent. A qualified project manager, who arranged the communications between the port, the platform, the captain and all the others involved, provided support for the project.

“We particularly owe the smooth operations within the project to the excellent level of cooperation within the team, which consisted of Rhenus Offshore Logistics, Sassnitz Ferry Port, the vessel, the bunker supplier and the customer. The project was our first order of this kind in the Baltic Sea and it therefore signifies an expansion of our field of operations along the German coast too,” said Thore Schreiber, Head of Business Development and Sales at Rhenus Offshore Logistics.

The trip from Mukran Port to the Wikinger wind farm, which is located 35 kilometres off the coast of Rügen, takes about four hours, Rhenus said.

Wikinger is currently in the turbine installation phase and is due to go online later this year.
