The heavy lift vessel “Oleg Strashnov” is steaming its way toward Vattenfall’s DanTysk offshore wind farm in the North Sea.
The vessel is delivering the jacket structure for the Tennet Sylwin Alpha platform, the converter station of the project’s grid access, according to Vattenfall’s Holger Grubel.
The “Oleg Strashnov” will be assisted by a number of tug boats and anker handling tugs to keep position during the installation process.
The platform is expected to transform and transmit up to 864 MW of energy produced by the DanTysk and Butendiek wind farms to the German mainland.
This has been a pretty busy period for Seaway Heavy Lifting’s crane vessel. Namely, the “Oleg Strashnov” has recently completed the installation of the 3,300 mT transformer topside of the WindMW Meerwind project. With the installation of the topside the wind farm is completed.
Seaway Heavy Lifting performed the transport & installation of transition pieces, the transformer topside as well as the jacket for WindMW.
