Jumbo wins 80 strong offshore contract

January 2 - Jumbo Shipping has been awarded a contract from Ballast Nedam Offshore (BNO) to transport and install 80 transition pieces for the Butendiek offshore wind farm.

The transition pieces are being manufactured in Esbjerg, Denmark and will be transported and installed using the dynamically positioned heavy lift vessel Jumbo Javelin.
The contract, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2014, will involve the Jumbo Javelin lifting, shipping and installing all of the pieces in ten voyages of eight transition pieces each.
To safely install the transition pieces, which weigh approximately 330 tonnes each with a height of 31 m and a diameter of 5.5 m, Jumbo has invested in increased lifting height capability by acquiring a 700-tonne safe working load fly jib.
The Butendiek offshore wind farm, which is operated by OWP Butendiek, is located approximately 35 nautical miles from the island of Sylt in Germany and consists of 80 wind turbine generators and one offshore substation foundation.
