The former England Ferry, Dana Anglia, which in recent years has sailed in the Mediterranean, will again get Esbjerg as base port when it in the future will serve as a floating hotel for Swedish offshore employees. On Tuesday afternoon, the ferry docked in Esbjerg for the first time in 12 years.

The former DFDS ferry Dana Anglia, will be based in Esbjerg the next seven months. It will operate as a hotel ship for the Swedish offshore workers that period to work on the construction of the wind farm Butendiek near the northern German island of Sylt.

Dana Anglia was built at Aalborg Shipyard and delivered to DFDS in 1978 - and immediately deployed on the Esbjerg-Harwich. Later the ferry was replaced to the Oslo route and ended its days as DFDS Duke of Scandinavia in Poland and in the North Sea. In 2006 the ship was chartered and renamed Pont L'abbé, and finally in 2008 it was sold to Moby Lines.

Butendiek Offshore Wind Park will consist of 80 wind turbines and will have a capacity of 288 MW. The park, once it is completed in 2015, will cover 370,000 households electricity consumption with green power.

The wind farm is owned by Siemens Financial Services, Marguerite Fund Industry Pension, PKA A/S and WPD, each with a significant stake, also CDC Infrastructure and EWZ are co-owners.
