EMO supports Vattenfall´s Marine Coordination Center in Denmark
EMS Maritime Offshore GmbH (EMO), based in Emden, will provide nautical personnel for Vattenfall's "Marine Coordination Center" based in Esbjerg, Denmark, from 1 March 2019. This was preceded by a tender for a three-year maritime service in which EMO was able to prevail against its competitors. Up to 10 well-trained and experienced EMO Marine Coordinators will support Vattenfall´s offshore wind projects 24/7 during the construction and operation phases. Inter alia, the team will be responsible for documenting and coordinating all personnel and ship movements in the offshore wind farms.
"We are very proud that Vattenfall has selected our nautical staff to coordinate their projects," says Jan Heyenga, Head of Maritime Services at EMO, adding: "We look forward to working with the Vattenfall team in the future". Vattenfall coordinates its offshore wind farms on the Danish west coast from Esbjerg, including the Sandbank and Dan Tysk projects, which are already in the operational phase, and the Horns Rev 3 project, which is currently in the construction phase. ______________________________________________________________________________
