Dantysk signs vessel contract for delivery of wind turbines

Vattenfall’s German offshore project Dantysk has signed a contract on a vessel for the transportation and installation of 80 wind turbines.

The installation vessel, Pacific Orca, is being built by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea to be delivered in 2012.

Vattenfall and Stadtwerke München will build the Dantysk offshore wind farm as a joint project managed by a team based in Hamburg.

On Thursday, the consortium signed a deal with the Danish shipping company Swire Blue Ocean (SBO) on a vessel for the transportation and installation of 80 Siemens wind turbines.
