SeaPlanner to support 396MW offshore wind farm in Germany

SeaPlanner, a marine monitoring and management solution of SeaRoc Group, has been chosen to support the commissioning phase of the Merkur offshore wind farm in Germany.

SeaPlanner, a marine monitoring and management solution of SeaRoc Group, has been chosen to support the commissioning phase of the Merkur offshore wind farm in Germany.

The company has been selected as part of the SeaRoc’s collaboration with the Dutch company Marine Coordination Services.

Under the contract, Marine Coordination Services will carry out all works related to operational marine coordination during the commissioning of the 396MW project.

The company will leverage the capabilities of the SeaPlanner system to manage safety and efficiency of the work.

SeaRoc Group sales manager Graham Howe said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Marine Coordination Services team with their work to manage all operational activities at this stage of the project.

“This contract goes to show the added value that our collaboration with companies, such as MCS can bring to clients. With their experience and our software, we can provide the resources needed to manage a cost-efficient and safe project for the wind farm’s operation for years to come.”

“We’re delighted to be supporting the Marine Coordination Services team with their work to manage all operational activities at this stage of the project.”

In January 2017, project’s principal contractor GeoSea NV awarded the contract to SeaPlanner to support the construction of the wind farm.

The scope of the contract included the delivery of integrated personnel and vessel tracking software, access control hardware and installation and setup of the marine coordination centre based in Eemshaven in the Netherlands.

Located nearly 35km north of the island of Borkum in Germany, the Merkur wind farm features 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines.

The project is being developed by Merkur Offshore, a joint venture of Partners Group, InfraRed, DEME and Coriolis.

In June 2018, the project produced first power and is expected to become fully operational by the end of this year.
