MRE secure Merkur
Leading generator supplier wins latest Offshore Wind project with GE Renewable Energy
Manor Renewable Energy Ltd (MRE) is supplying temporary power, personnel and a multi-purpose vessel as a single contract solution to GE Renewable Energy for the Merkur Offshore Wind Farm project.
MRE will provide temporary power pods, designed and manufactured in-house, with a 2000L integrated fuel tank to reduce the refueling and vessel intervention of smaller tanks. MRE Director, Toby Mead: “The German market is key for MRE and the Merkur OWF is now our sixth project in the last 3 years and we are hugely excited to be working with a new client in GE Renewable Energy. We look upon each project as a different challenge and work hard to deliver the perfect solution; with us owning a large range of generators, a new build vessel and working with the leading offshore technicians, this temporary power offering is interface-free, which at present is setting us apart”.
The Merkur project is located in the German sector of the North Sea at 45km from shore; all 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines are due for installation in 2018 and the offshore wind farm will have a total capacity of 396MW.
