Statoil has handed two six-year contracts to energy logistics firm Peterson to provide support for its £1.5billion Dudgeon wind farm project in the southern North Sea.
Peterson will provide Statoil with stevedoring and ship agency services, provisions delivery, staff transportation, as well as fuelling from its base in Great Yarmouth.
The contract values were not disclosed.
The 402megawatt offshore wind farm will be located 20 miles off the coast of Norfolk.
The project is owned by operator Statoil alongside Norwegian power company Statkraft and Masdar, an Abu Dhabi-based renewable energy firm.
Peterson recently supported the barge load-out of the Dudgeon offshore wind farm substation. Watch a video of the load-out here.
Ron van der Laan, a regional director at Peterson, which has a base in Aberdeen, said: “To have been awarded these long term contracts for such a ground-breaking project is a huge achievement for Peterson’s Great Yarmouth team. This strongly positions Peterson as a leading provider of logistics support to wind farm assets in the southern North Sea.
“The management of logistics services in the renewables industry presents a significant growth opportunity for us. We have the depth of experience and proven capabilities to deliver the services required to meet the needs of operators working in this sector.”
