DONG and Seacat Confirm Two Workboat Crew Transfer Deal (UK)

DONG Energy and class-leading offshore wind transfer vessel operator, Seacat Services, today confirmed a twelve-month, two workboat crew transfer deal to support construction operations at the 210MW Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm.

The Round 2 UK offshore wind project, which began offshore construction in late February, will become the first wind farm to use the Siemens 6MW turbine on a commercial scale, anywhere in the world.

With all 35 turbines to be fully commissioned by mid-2015, construction on the thirty-five square kilometre site will demand the highest possible level of workboat and crew availability – a challenge that can present significant concerns for developers when undertaking large-scale installations far out to sea.

To address this, Seacat Services will deploy two DNV class-certified, British-built workboats, powered by two MTU diesel engines driving water jets. When fully laden, each vessel has the capability to accommodate 12 technicians, up to 3 STCW-certified crew and 15 tonnes of equipment and on-deck cargo, while reaching speeds of over 25 knots.
