Jumbo Shipping Secures Contract with DEME Offshore on Hornsea Two Offshore Wind Farm


Jumbo has been awarded a contract to support DEME Offshore in its scope of work on Ørsted’s Hornsea Two offshore wind farm. Jumbo’s scope of work in the project is the provision of transportation for 165 monopiles from Rostock to Eemshaven and 135 transition pieces from Aalborg to Eemshaven with a K3000 class vessel.

Visit Jumbo at Breakbulk Europe, hall 5 stand 5G60.


In addition to shipping the monopiles and transition pieces, the project will see Jumbo undertake the project management for the transport scope, including the engineering and design of both transportation and cradles. 
 
Track record
Jumbo was awarded the contract due to its intake and lifting capacity of the Jumbo K3000 vessels. The K3000 class offers 3,250m2 free deck space, well suited to transportation of large equipment such as transitions pieces and monopiles. It also offers 3,000t lifting capacity courtesy of its dual 1,500t cranes. Another factor in the award of contract is the previous track record in projects such as this, including on the Burbo Bank Extension in the Irish Sea and the Yunlin project off Taiwan. 
 
Jumbo Commercial Manager Renewables Boudewijn van der Garden says: “We are very pleased to be working alongside DEME Offshore on the Hornsea Two project. This contract is an affirmation of our previous work in the offshore wind industry. Our scope here once again demonstrates the suitability of the K3000 Class in supporting the development of sustainable energy projects such as this.
 
Hornsea Two
Ørsted’s Hornsea Two site is located adjacent to the Hornsea One offshore wind farm, 89 km off the coast of Yorkshire, UK. When complete, Hornsea Two will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm  with a capacity of 1.4GW, sufficient to provide clean, sustainable energy to well over 1.3 million homes. Jumbo will commence transportation of the monopiles and transitions pieces in August 2020.
