JDR steps up Product and Installation Services support for EnBW Baltic 2 Offshore Wind Farm
: JDR has extended its service support operations for the EnBW Baltic 2 offshore wind farm. Under a contract awarded by Siem Offshore Contractors GmbH, JDR is providing pre-commissioning, test and termination services for the 80 turbine project in the Baltic Sea, off the coast of Rostock (Germany).
JDR’s offshore wind test and termination team was commissioned to deliver a scope of work that included onshore planning and procedures, project management, mechanical installation, cable containment, termination, test, modification and reporting. The project scope – for people and equipment involved – continues to grow.
Mr. Günther Bakker, Chief Operating Officer at Siem Offshore commented: “We brought JDR into the EnBW Baltic 2 project due to their full support team capability and extensive experience in offshore power cable operations. In field, their work has been professional with on time delivery. We are delighted to extend their role in the project.”
Charlie Backhouse, JDR’s Product and Installation Services Director, commented: JDR provides specialist offshore teams with full onshore and logistics support. A JDR offshore wind services team is typically made up of three operatives, rather than the industry standard five, without any compromises in quality or safety standards. This is another important contribution to the delivery cost-effective renewable energy.”
Renewables Services is a fast growing area for JDR’s Product and Installation Services operations. The team supports the renewables industry; from project installation consultancy, to equipment hire and pre-commissioning, with ongoing full product life cycle support including repair and maintenance. JDR’s approach is designed to maximize product investment and lower the total cost of equipment ownership.
