Umoe Mandal

Umoe Wind AS owns the first Wave Craft built at Umoe Mandal AS. The vessel has been chartered by DONG Energy to serve the Borkum Riffgrund 1 Offshore Wind Farm in the North Sea, 54 kilometres from DONG Energy’s O&M base in Norddeich. Borkum Riffgrund is a major focus area for offshore wind power. Valling Ship Management in Denmark operates the vessel with Danish crew.

The development of the Wave Craft vessel was supported both financially and technically as part of the Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) Access Competition. Jan Matthiesen, Director Innovation at the Carbon Trust, “We are convinced that new innovative solutions, like Wave Craft will provide significant cost savings to the offshore wind industry and we are delighted to see another of the Offshore Wind Accelerator supported concepts reach the market.”

Umoe Wind AS has decided to procure a second Wave Craft vessel from Umoe Mandal AS. The second vessel is currently under construction and will be delivered to Umoe Wind in 2015.
