Seaway wins windfarm trio

January 27, 2015

DONG Energy has awarded offshore substation transportation and installation contracts for the Burbo Bank Extension, Race Bank and Walney Extension to Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL).

The three contracts cover the transportation and installation of in total up to five platforms. The offshore substations will support the power transmission of Burbo Bank Extension, Race Bank and Walney Extension Offshore Wind Farms.

For the execution of the projects Seaway Heavy Lifting will utilise both the Stanislav Yudin (2500-Mt lift capacity) and the Oleg Strashnov (5000-Mt lift capacity) crane vessels.

These awards follow on the successful installation of the Westermost Rough offshore substation in 2014 for developer Westermost Rough, of which DONG Energy owns the majority shares.

Bob Dunsmore - Senior Vice President Renewable Energy for SHL said; “We are very pleased to have this opportunity to continue to work with DONG Energy on their portfolio of new projects in the UK sector. These combined awards contribute to the pursuit of lower cost solutions in our industry by providing the opportunity for standardisation and operational efficiencies.” 

SHL has now executed or has a backlog of a total of 25 Offshore Wind Farm substations as well as over 150 platform installations in the offshore Oil and Gas Industry.
