Harren & Partner has taken over the technical management of a jack-up vessel owned by Ocean Breeze Energy.

The Bremen-based operation will become the technical manager of the 7,962-gt Wind Lift I (built 2010), starting in April.

Harren & Partner has already operated similar vessels in the Gulf of Mexico, where they worked on projects for the oil and gas industry.

With this move, the German company shows its intention to focus on renewable energies as well.

A spokesperson told TradeWinds: "After having been involved in the oil and gas sector for many years, Harren & Partner is now also focusing increasingly on renewable energies.
