Innovation, a heavy-lift jack-up vessel owned by HGO InfraSea Solutions, has been working at the UK’s Westermost Rough offshore wind farm as of January 2014, the owner informed on its official website.
The contract, signed with DONG Energy last year, includes the installation of 35 monopiles and transition pieces (TPs) at the wind farm’s site.
The latest Innovation‘s operation was at the Global Tech I offshore wind farm in the German North Sea, where the vessel installed tripod foundations.
Two days ago, the vessel called at Aalborg Harbour for its first transport of foundations for Westermost Rough.
The wind farm will feature 35 Siemens’ 6MW turbines, and it is expected to be fully commissioned in the first half of 2015. It will be able to supply clean power corresponding to the annual power consumption of almost 210,000 British households.
