Ballast Nedam has sold its current portfolio of 4 offshore wind inspection and maintenance contracts to Deutsche Windtechnik BV. The transaction also includes two staff members involved and is effective from January 1, 2016.
It allows further growth for the team and the business, in an environment which is exclusively oriented at the wind industry. The sale involves 5-year inspection and maintenance contracts for the following projects:
- Eneco Luchterduinen, a 129MW offshore wind farm owned by Eneco and Mitsubishi Corporation
- Prinses Amaliawindpark, a 120MW offshore wind farm operational since 2007, and under the care of Ballast Nedam since 2009. It is owned by Eneco
- Butendiek, a 288MW offshore wind farm near the Danish border in the German North Sea, owned by a group of international investors
- Westermeerwind, a 144MW offshore wind farm, which is currently being built between Lemmer and Urk in the IJsselmeer. Siemens Nederland is the EPCM contractor for the wind farm and operates it on behalf of the owners.
This transfer of offshore energy maintenance contracts is in line with Ballast Nedam’s strategy to focus its activities on the working areas of housing and mobility, following the sale of its offshore activities at the end of 2014. Deutsche Windtechnik BV is the Dutch subsidiary of Deutsche Windtechnik, an independent service provider for the wind industry from Germany. Almost 800 employees take care of almost 3000 wind turbines in across Europe.
