In February 2010 Seajacks entered into a contract with GustoMSC to provide the Basic Design Package for a purpose built wind farm installation vessel.
In June 2010 Seajacks entered into a contract with Lamprell shipyard to build the new vessel and Seajacks will take delivery of the first new-build, Seajacks Zaratan, in May 2012.
The self-propelled jack-up has been designed specifically to service the wind farm installation market in the harsh operating environment of the North Sea, as well as to provide services to the oil and gas industry. The vessel will be a modified version of the MSC NG5500 design, which incorporates a fully redundant DP2 propulsion system, accommodation for 90 persons, and an 800T leg encircling crane designed by MSC.
The vessel has an HSE accepted Safety Case in accordance with UK Offshore Installation (Safety Case) Regulations 2005.
