ODE taking offshore wind skills overseas

ODE taking offshore wind skills overseas
Engineering firm ODE has picked up an 18-month project management and support services contract on a new German offshore wind farm.

Engineering firm ODE has picked up an 18-month project management and support services contract on a new German offshore wind farm.

ODE, based in London, also said it hoped to have teams working on two offshore wind farm demonstrator projects in the US.

It said it its moves into Europe and the US were thanks to having built up experience on UK windfarms.

“These contracts add significant strength to our international foothold,” said ODE chairman and managing director Peter Godfrey.

“Both support our ambitions to drive deeper into the European and American renewables markets, taking with us UK knowledge, skills and lessons we have learned from windfarms such as Ormonde, Robin Rigg, Gwynt y Môr and Scroby Sands – and from the German DanTysk site off Germany, where we’re providing technical assistance on the foundations of the substation platform, living quarters and turbines.”

The German contract is for project management and engineering support services pm the £1.6bn Iberdrola Wikinger windfarm planned in the Baltic Sea.

This will see the installation of up to 80-turbines located about 30km off the Island of Rügen, creating one of the largest projects in the Baltic Sea and Iberdrola’s first in Germany.

The projects in the US are in the Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, where the companies have been working against intense competition for funding from the federal government. A decision is likely to be made later this year, but ODE said it was optimistic of success with both projects.
