Aibel to build DolWin services platform

NORWAY: Norwegian services provider Aibel is to build an offshore platform designed to facilitate the servicing of wind farms.

The company has signed a deal with UAE-based Drydocks World to build the platform, which is to be used in the DolWin cluster of projects near Dollart in the German sector of the North Sea.

Aibel is a supplier for ABB, which has in turn been contracted to grid operator TenneT.

The platform is 72.8-metres by 92.3-metres and will hold accommodation for 16 people. It is expected to be completed by December 2013.

Aibel CEO, Jan Skogseth said: "The platform will be transported to Aibel`s yard in Haugesund Norway for outfitting. In the summer of 2014 Aibel will tow the platform from Haugesund to the offshore site in the North Sea and install the platform on the sea bottom."
