Swire Blue Ocean’s wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) Pacific Orca has installed 28 out of 56 turbines at the 336MW Galloper offshore wind farm, innogy reported via social media.

The vessel installed the first turbine at the site on 16 May 2017. Earlier in September, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s Bold Tern also joined the project to help out with the works and ensure a timely completion.

Siemens Gamesa, whose 6MW wind turbines will spin at the wind farm, contracted Swire Blue Ocean to provide a WTIV for Galloper in November 2015. In August 2016, Siemens chose the Peel Ports Great Yarmouth as the assembly location and installation base for the project.

Along with the delivery of the wind turbines, Siemens Gamesa is also in charge of their maintenance for a period of 15 years, once the project is operational.

The Galloper offshore wind farm, an extension of the Greater Gabbard, is expected to be commissioned in early 2018.
