Siemens is beginning a three-year charter agreement for DBB Jack-up’s new jack-up vessel, Wind Server. The vessel will be part of the service concept for the rising number of large-scaled offshore wind power projects across Northern Europe.

DBB Jack-Up Services A/S delivered Wind Server to Siemens on March 14th. “We are very pleased to add this highly innovative, purpose-built superior jack-up vessel to our service fleet. It will allow us to keep the vessel ready for fast mobilization, reducing the required lead time for projects,” says René Cornelis Wigmans, Head of Maritime & Aviation Solutions Siemens Wind Power Service. He adds: “The addition of Wind Server to our fleet represents our unrelenting approach in reducing the cost of offshore wind energy and underscores our lasting commitment in developing and offering efficient offshore wind service solutions for our customers.”

Constructed at Nordic Yards in Germany, Wind Server is purpose- built for maintenance and service operations. Thorsten Jalk, CEO of DBB Jack-Up Services says: “We are delighted to deliver our new vessel to Siemens and to commence this charter agreement, as announced two years ago. Enabling efficient asset utilization and shared logistics between offshore wind power projects, the new vessel will play an important role in helping to reduce the levelised cost of energy.”
