Veja Mate Service Largest Ever German Order for Siemens
Along with 67 of its 6-megawatts direct drive offshore wind turbines, Siemens will also provide a 15-year service and maintenance to Veja Mate offshore wind farm, which is the largest ever wind service order for Siemens in Germany and the second largest globally.
Siemens will provide an offshore service logistics concept, tailored specifically for far-shore projects such as Veja Mate that uses both helicopters and a specially designed, purpose-built service operation vessel (SOV). It will be the fifth SOV to be deployed by Siemens in European waters.
To ensure increased energy production this concept allows maintenance work to be carried out at almost all times irrespective of the weather conditions or wave height.
Veja Mate Offshore Project GmbH, a company owned by Highland Group Holdings Ltd, Copenhagen Infrastructure II, a fund managed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Siemens Financial Services (SFS) have made a final investment decision on June 30.
The financing is being provided through a combination of equity and debt, with SFS working in partnership with Highland Capital Group and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners in the multi-source project financing structure.
