Seajacks Scylla delivered

UK-based offshore installation and maintenance contractor Seajacks International has taken successful delivery of its fifth self-propelled jackup vessel, the Seajacks Scylla.

Built by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea, Seajacks says Scylla is the world’s largest and most capable installation jackup vessel to date and will join Seajacks’ growing and impressive fleet of modern vessels, which includes the Kraken, Leviathan, Hydra and Zaratan.

Commenting on the delivery of Seajacks Scylla, Blair Ainslie, Seajacks CEO said: “It’s another terrific achievement for the new build team at Seajacks, who have now overseen the on-time and on-budget delivery of five of the world’s most advanced DP2 jackup vessels.

"Scylla is the largest and most advanced installation jackup on the market and is targeted at the offshore wind and oil and gas markets. The vessel can handle XL monopiles, jacket foundations, and is able to transport an impressive number of the 7 and 8MW turbines that are currently available in the wind market.”

In early December, Seajacks Scylla will begin her journey from South Korea to Europe on-board the heavy load carrier vessel, HLV Osprey, and is expected to arrive in Rotterdam around the end of January. Seajacks operations teams will then prepare the vessel for her first project next spring.

Based in Great Yarmouth, Seajacks International is a UK based company, employing nearly 300 people onshore and offshore. Scylla’s first job in the UK will commence in 2017 for DONG Energy at the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.

Sailing at speeds of 12 knots or over, Scylla is outfitted with 105m-long legs which give the ability to install components in water depths in excess of 65m (North Sea conditions). Scylla is equipped with a Huisman 1500-tonne leg-encircling crane and has useable deck space of up to 5000sq m and 8800-tonne of available variable load.
