On 4 August 2014, SEA CHALLENGER loaded the last components for the first batch for DONG Energy’s Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm in the UK.
SEA CHALLENGER is scheduled to leave Esbjerg on 6 August and installation is expected to start this week.
“It is a new generation of components and lifting gear with the Siemens 6MW turbine and our new vessel SEA CHALLENGER, but things have gone well in a safe manner according to the plan. Now, we are all looking forward to reaching the site and beginning the installation. It will be interesting to see our new vessel in action for the first time. However, I have no doubt that she will manage the installation with success as expected,” says Peter Eriksen, master on board SEA CHALLENGER.
The Westermost Rough OWF comprises of 35 Siemens 6MW turbines and is located 8 kilometers of the coast of Holderness in the UK.
