Vattenfall and SWM say they have commissioned the accommodation platform for the DanTysk offshore wind farm. Germany-based Nobiskrug will build the offshore accommodation platform in the Abu Dhabi MAR dockyard Kiel.

From 2014 onward, the team building the offshore wind project will have quiet rooms, with a shower, Internet access and a TV - right in the middle of the North Sea. In addition to providing accommodation for the crew, the living quarters will include a catering complex, washing facilities, workshops, storage areas, offices and room for leisure activities.

The platform will be able to house 50 people and will be in use 365 days a year.

“Anyone who's experienced the harsh climate of the North Sea - with its strong winds and waves - will understand the importance of good working and living conditions for the maintenance teams on-site,” says Holger Grubel, head of the DanTysk project. “In Germany, we're facing particular challenges because offshore wind farms are located up to 100 km from the coast.”

Installation of the wind turbines for the 288 MW DanTysk wind farm is due to start in December. The entire wind farm is scheduled to be up and running in 2014.
