Seacat seals Westermost work

Transfer vessel operator Seacat Services has sealed a deal with Dong Energy to support construction operations at the 210MW Westermost Rough offshore wind farm

The one year, two-workboat crew transfer deal will support the Round 2 UK offshore wind project, which began construction in late February when the first of 35 monopiles was put in place by installation vessel GeoSea Innovation.

Cowes-based Seacat Services will deploy two DNV class-certified, UK-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 three crew and 15 tonnes of equipment and on-deck cargo, while reaching speeds of over 25 knots.

Westermost Rough will be the first offshore wind farm to commercially deploy Siemens 6MW turbines.
