UAE: Jack-Up Vessel ‘Seajacks Zaratan’ Delivered

UAE - Jack-up Vessel 'Seajacks Zaratan' Delivered

Seajacks has taken delivery of Seajacks Zaratan, a state-of-the-art jack-up vessel purpose built for the offshore wind industry. The jack-up vessel was built by Lamprell Energy at their Hamriyah facility and increases Seajacks’ fleet to three self-propelled vessels.

The contract for the construction of the vessel was signed between Seajacks and Lamprell in May 2010 following the successful delivery of Seajacks Kraken and Seajacks Leviathan the previous year.

A modified version of the GustoMSC NG5500 design, Seajacks Zaratan incorporates a fully- redundant DP2 propulsion system which allows for fast, safe and cost-efficient transit and positioning between port and offshore location. In addition, the self-propelled jack-up is equipped with an 800T leg-encircling crane, the ability to perform jacking operations in 2m significant wave heights, accommodation for 90 people and will be fully compliant with all North Sea regulatory requirements. This makes the vessel ideal for the installation and maintenance of offshore wind farms.

The Zaratan will start its first assignment in September where it will perform the installation of 80 wind turbine generators (WTGs) and foundations alongside Seajacks Leviathan on the Meerwind wind farm.

Blair Ainslie, Managing Director of Seajacks UK, said, “Seajacks is delighted to announce the arrival of Seajacks Zaratan, our third self-propelled vessel delivered on time and on budget from Lamprell. Lamprell has proven itself as a premium and reliable shipyard and we are pleased to be marking this event with them once again.

This milestone underscores our commitment to provide the highest quality of services and equipment to the offshore energy sector and cements our position as one of the leading operators of self-propelled jack-ups in Europe.”

Ferries Asia Summit

Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.

Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?

Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable. Bringing together fast-ferry, RO-RO and ROPAX vessel owners along with international and domestic maritime regulators, classification agencies, shipbuilders and naval architects, this event connects the entire value chain for a meaningful holistic debate on ferry operations excellence in Asia.

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA THIS YEAR?

Comprehensive debates on addressing the complexity of ferry safety in Asia: Is vessel age truly the greatest concern? How significant are other factors, and how can they be addressed?
