“To date, Jumbo Offshore has transported and installed over 400 transition pieces with our DP2 heavy lift vessels,” said Brian Boutkan, manager commerce at Jumbo Offshore. “After working together on the Arkona offshore wind farm, we are looking forward to working for Van Oord again. This project award shows the continuation of our focus in the offshore wind industry with our efficient transport and installation solutions as well as the trust of our clients in our capabilities and equipment.”

In other news, Jumbo-SAL-Alliance has started the execution phase of the secondary steel installation at the Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farms, utilising its heavy lift vessel Lone.   

In mid-July, the vessel mobilisation was completed before the vessel headed to Italy to collect further equipment on behalf of Jan De Nul. It then loaded out secondary steel components in Eemshaven.
