SIEMENS logo_ExecutiveBizSiemens Energy has reached a chartering agreement with ship operator Esvagt A/S to build two offshore wind service vessels, World Maritime News reported Friday.

Siemens intends to use the service operations vessels as floating offshore platforms for its service operations at the Butendiek and Baltic II offshore wind power plants in Germany, which are scheduled to start in 2015, the report said.

Tim Holt, CEO of Siemens Energy’s service renewables business unit, told the publication the company intends for the vessels to help centralize offshore service operations and logistics services for clients.

The vessels will be built with spare parts storage and office space, as well as direct turbine access using a hydraulic gangway system, according to the report.

Construction will begin in August at the Havyard Shipyard in Norway and the vessels are scheduled for launch in 2015.
