Danish wind turbine installation and service company Global Wind Service (GWS) has secured a contract to support MHI Vestas on the Northwester 2 offshore wind project by providing technicians for the installation of turbines.

The deal includes GWS offshore installation technicians supporting the installation of 23 MHI Vestas 164-9.5MW turbines at the site offshore Belgium from November.

GWS is also supporting MHI Vestas with pre-assembly activities on Northwester 2 through its base in Vlissingen.

"We are grateful to MHI Vestas Offshore for the opportunity to support the first offshore installation of their V164 9.5MW WTGs and we very much look forward to mobilizing our experienced personnel for this important project. We have a close and strong partnership with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and are very pleased to continue our journey - this time installing their 23 turbines at Northwester 2 Offshore Wind Farm," said Lars Petersen, CCO at GWS

Northwester 2 is a 219MW Offshore Wind Farm being constructed in the North Sea off the coast of Ostend, Belgium.

The offshore wind farm is expected to have a 25-year lifespan and to generate 818,60GWh of electricity; enough to meet the needs of approximately 220,000 households.
