Statoil secures logistics support for offshore wind farm

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Statoil has awarded Peterson two long-term contracts to provide logistics support for the Dudgeon offshore wind farm in the southern North Sea.

Peterson will deliver comprehensive logistics services including stevedoring, ship agency services, provisions delivery and transportation of personnel for walk to work security.  It will also be responsible for the supply of fuelling services from its facility in Great Yarmouth.

In addition, the company recently supported the barge load-out of the 1,800Te Dudgeon offshore windfarm substation. Peterson provided 12 of the 72 self-propelled modular transporters axles required for this operation which was completed successfully and safely in Lowestoft in July 2016. 

The Dudgeon field is a £1.5-billion ($2-billion) project to harness offshore wind to power more than 410,000 UK homes. This 402-MW offshore wind farm will be located some 20 mi (32 km) off the coast of Norfolk.

Ron van der Laan, regional director of Peterson 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 windfarm 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.”
