SEA CHALLENGER proved her worth when on 14 August successfully installing the first Siemens 6MW turbine on the Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm in the UK.

“Everything went according to plan and we installed the turbine as scheduled safely and on time,” said Master Brian Bendixen.

CEO in A2SEA, Jens Frederik Hansen was also very satisfied with the crew on board SEA CHALLENGER including the team work with Siemens Wind Power and DONG Energy:

“It is nice to see our new vessel in action performing well. We have seen great work from the sister vessel SEA INSTALLER, so our expectations are high, but so far they have all been met.”

The Westermost Rough  OWF comprises 35 Siemens 6MW turbines and turbine installation is expected to be completed in first half of 2015.
