MPI Workboats and Statoil contract commences
Mon, 18 April 2016
MPI Workboats has been awarded two long-term contracts with Statoil on the Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm.
The two vessels, MPI Napoleon and MPI Snowball, will provide crew-transfer support. The first began its 18-month contract in early April with the second set to start in later 2016.
Located 20 miles off the North Norfolk coast, the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm will aim to harness offshore wind power to more than 410,00 UK homes.
The £1.5bn project will be developed and operated by Statoil and should start to generate electricity in early 2017.
BV-Class 22m vessels, MPI Snowball and MPI Napoleon, are all-around vessels, this versatility was a major factor in securing the deal.
Contracts were signed at a ceremony in Bergen, Norway which was attended by MPI Workboats’ general manager, Leslie Robertson.
