Walk-to-Work Offshore Support Accommodation vessel DP GALYNA was contracted by Forewind for operation and maintenance work to its two meteorological masts on North Sea’s Dogger Bank, located approximately 150 km off the east coast of Yorkshire.
DP GALYNA sailed to Great Yarmouth to take on board the technicians of SeaRoc Group for scheduled operation and maintenance of the masts and its instrumentation and proceeded to the offshore location.
The vessel’s fixed Ampelmann walk-to-work access system allowed the technicians to board the platforms of both masts in a safe and time efficient way, perform their tasks and enjoy the comfort of DP GALYNA’s high standard accommodation and catering facilities.
Favorable sea and weather conditions contributed to a smooth operation and the required work was accomplished early without any incident or loss of time and within budget.
Forewind’s two meteorological masts – Dogger Bank Met Mast East and West – provide essential wind, wave and other weather information, as well as marine traffic data for the Dogger Bank offshore wind energy development.
