Seajacks Zaratan awarded Veja Mate installation
Offshore Windforce has contracted Seajacks Zaratan to install 67 transition pieces at the Veja Mate offshore wind farm. The 400MW wind farm will be based 95km north-west of Borkum in the German exclusive economic zone.
Seajacks Scylla will also be installing Veja Mate’s 67 monopiles, starting Q1 2016 with full commercial operation for the windfarm planned for Q4 2017.
Seajacks CEO Blair Ainslie said:
“Zaratan will be working in tandem with sister vessel Seajacks Scylla which has already been selected for the monopile installation.
This set up of installing monopiles and TPs from separate installation jack ups was very successful on Blackstone’s 288MW Meerwind project and I am sure it will be the same here”
Seajacks Scylla’s deck space of 4,600m² and Seajacks Zaratan’s deck leg capacity makes them the perfect installation team for deeper water wind farms as the components steadily get heavier and larger in the industry. The efficient and safe installation of Veja Mate is a priority for everyone who works for and with Seajacks and is for every project Seajacks works on.
