Jill joins Fred. Olsen's fleet

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has signed a long-term time charter agreement with Falcon Global that will see the jack-up vessel Jill join its fleet.

Under Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s commercial management, the vessel will be working out of Europe, largely handling operations and maintenance work for offshore wind energy projects.

The vessel is equipped with 102 m-long legs and a large cargo deck capable of transporting wind turbine components including gearboxes, generators, transformers and blades.

According to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, the jack-up vessel is currently transporting heavy lift cargo across the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico and will be ready to enter operation from mid-April 2019. Its first project for the company will be suction bucket installation tests in Denmark.

In March of 2018, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier announced that it had signed a cooperation agreement with Falcon Global that states that each party will exclusively contribute vessels and marine/installation crew to the US market. As part of this agreement, the companies said they will operate a full spread range of offshore wind installation feeder vessels to support the US offshore wind energy market.
