MPI Offshore, based in Stokesley, UK, and part of the Netherlands-based Vroon Group, announced that its vessel MPI Adventure and its services will be employed on the Sandbank Offshore Wind Farm project.

The company will perform the offshore transport and installation of all 72 Siemens 4-MW wind turbines, together with a wide range of related services.

Vattenfall and Stadtwerke München (Munich City Utilities, SWM) have this week confirmed their commitment to this project,  their second joint offshore wind farm off the German North Sea coast.

Sandbank is expected to annually generate 1.4 TWh of renewable electricity annually, equivalent to the consumption of about 400,000 households.

The new wind farm will be built 110km off the German coast. MPI’s involvement with the wind turbine installation on the Sandbank project is scheduled to commence at the end of the summer of 2016.

Gunnar Groebler, Head of the Renewables Business Unit for Vattenfall’s Continental/UK region said: “We know how to work offshore and we see it as a significant building block in the success of the energy transition (Energiewende) in Germany.”
