Dutch on board for Merkur finale

Dutch outfit Marine Coordination Services has secured a contract for work during the commissioning phase of the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The company said it will carry out all operational marine coordination activities during commissioning.

“As a newcomer to the Dutch market, it is our biggest challenge to gain the confidence of the international industry. It is fantastic that, at this stage, a player like Merkur Offshore has so much confidence in our know-how and innovative working approach,” Marine Coordination Services added.
Marine Coordination Services managing owner Jens Doekse said: “When you opt for Marine Coordination Services, you know where you stand, whom you are doing business with and where the responsibility lies.”

The company added that Merkur is entering a testing, operational and connecting phase.

All 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines have been installed and the project is expected to be fully commissioned in the first quarter of 2019.
