UK-based offshore energy support vessel (OESV) operator Seacat Services said on Monday it has secured long-term extensions to its vessel support contracts with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) at Galloper Wind Farm, off the coast of Suffolk.
Building on a pair of two-year operations and maintenance charter agreements signed in 2017 for vessels Seacat Vigilant and Seacat Liberty, SGRE has now extended both contracts. Seacat Liberty is now under contract until the fourth quarter of 2022 and Seacat Vigilant until the fourth quarter of 2020, with options to extend further.
These multimillion-dollar contract extensions will see Seacat Services continue to provide specialist logistical support to the SGRE technical teams, transporting technicians and O&M equipment as they perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance at the 56-turbine Galloper site.
A third Seacat Services vessel, Seacat Ranger, remains on charter for Galloper Wind Farm Ltd.
