Baltic Taucherei is expanding its business. With grouting works at E.ON’s Amrumbank West offshore wind farm the company has completed its first offshore wind grouting support service.

Baltic Taucherei- und Bergungsbetrieb Rostock GmbH supported the grouting campaign of the 60th transition piece foundation on Amrumbank offshore wind farm in April and May 2015. The company said that with its track record of the recently completed offshore grouting operation, including a DP2 chartered vessel and an experienced project crew, Baltic Taucherei has now the required skills and experience within safe and efficient execution of these kinds of offshore operations. For the project, GRS Global Renewables Shipbrokers took care on all chartering issues of the DP2 Vessel Far Sapphire and the necessary Ampelmann transfer system.

After this successful campaign, Baltic Taucherei will enhance its services for offshore wind grouting operations by offering tailor-made solutions including DP2 vessel, grouting equipment and experienced project teams. “To win the tender after some hefty competition shows the growth of reputation within the industry, we are delighted to add Baltic Taucherei now also to the list of grouting service providers,” says Eyk-Uwe Pap, Director of Baltic Taucherei.
