Armed with practical know-how and insightful expertise gained from more than 330 successful major component replacements in more than 15 different offshore wind farms, we can help you plan your future O&M strategy.
DBB Jack-Up provides specially designed vessels that bring flexibility and efficiency to replacing major components on offshore wind turbines. With the average offshore wind turbine size predicted to reach 6MW by 2020, vessels need to be designed for an even more demanding future.
All of our experience and know-how gained in more than 330 major component replacements has influenced the design and manufacture of these vessels. The combination of these vessels and our insight gives us unparalleled flexibility to offer our customers the most efficient process.
We have the industry’s first self-propelled, heavy-lift barge with a permanently mounted, telescopic crane capable of working at a height of 100 metres. And two more purpose-built jack-up vessels soon to join our fleet are built to service even larger turbines in deeper waters, higher winds and on a variety of seabeds.
Effective and early planning of operations and maintenance processes can help reduce lost power production by up to 60 percent. Our O&M professionals bring thousands of hours of practical experience in all aspects of O&M, from crew transfer to component replacement to health and safety measures.
We also manage Provision of Appointed Persons, seafastening design and MWS approvals.
Not a blade is left unturned when you plan your O&M future with us.
Ask us to help you save time and money in planning your O&M strategy and processes. In addition to long-term strategic planning, we can help with:
• site-specific assessments
• leg penetration analyses
• maritime project management
• lift planning and supervision
We are here to help our customers achieve their energy production goals. Although we demand a lot of ourselves and our equipment, we do not compromise on the safety of our people or our customers at sea.
Creating a safety culture requires constant attention, especially when conditions can present unexpected challenges. Every day, in our planning onshore and work at sea, we strive to provide optimal conditions for a safe work environment.
We are serious about ensuring offshore wind is a truly viable option for delivering to the world’s energy needs. Massive investments have already been made in offshore wind infrastructure, and effective operations and maintenance of this infrastructure is critical in ensuring the industry delivers on its promise.
Through the work we do and the services we provide to the industry, we are intent on helping the industry reduce the costs of energy production by maximising operating time.
But there is work to be done. The cost of energy from offshore wind needs to be reduced by 40 percent by 2020 from 2014 levels. Innovative and long-term strategic change and investment is required. Asset owners, wind turbine manufacturers and vessel owners all have a part to play.
Due to begin service in 2014, J/U WIND PIONEER is a
50 x 28 m jack-up barge, capable of lifting 232 tonnes and designed to operate in depths of up to 35 m.
Not only are we investing in the people and the equipment to meet the needs of the market today and tomorrow, but we are also investing in sharing knowledge and experiences throughout the industry.
But we can’t solve all the industry’s challenges alone. It will take cooperation throughout the supply chain if the industry is to live up to its potential of delivering sustainable, cost-effective energy.

“I’ve been extremely impressed in the way DBB Jack-Up has responded to emergent requests and particularly how they contributed to the Marine Logistics meeting. DBB Jack-Up is very ambitious/successful collaborating with Siemens on a sustainable basis and not for just for the immediate benefit of a charter fee."
