by | Mar 30, 2015

With DBB Jack-Up’s track record of more than 370 offshore heavy lift operations, DBB Jack-Up’s vessel crew and project teams have the required skills and experience within safe and efficient execution of offshore operations to help expand DBB Jack-Up’s business into offshore decommissioning and installation support services.

For offshore wind decommissioning operations, DBB Jack-Up offers tailor-made solutions for removal of met masts, wind turbines and foundations. All operations are executed with a high focus on safety, cost efficiency and as little environmental impact as possible.

“Combined with the experience and skills of the DBB Jack-Up organisation, our purpose-built vessels offer a clear edge to the available alternatives,” says Thorsten Jalk, CEO of DBB Jack-Up Services A/S, and continues: “Our team handles the whole process from planning of the safest and most sustainable decommissioning method to recycling of the removed components.”

DBB Jack-Up has already successfully completed a number of turnkey decommissioning operations including removal of offshore met masts and monopiles on Horns Rev 1 and Horns Rev 2 for Vattenfall and DONG Energy, respectively.

In addition to the decommissioning operations, DBB Jack-Up is at present working at the Borkum Riffgrund 1 installation project in the German North Sea performing offshore installation support as well as providing J/U WIND SERVER as accommodation jack-up for Siemens AG.
