Kitty Petra Sails to Westermost Rough

As a result of the intense wind farm activity around the shores of the UK, Tidal Transit’s personnel transfer vessels (PTVs) are being kept fully employed. Within a week of finishing her contract in the seas off North Wales and returning to the UK’s east coast, Kitty Petra will begin work on Westermost Rough Wind Farm off the coast of Yorkshire.

At a distance of 8k offshore, Westermost Rough, under development by Dong Energy, will comprise 35 6MW turbines and once operational in 2015, will produce enough clean energy for around 200,000 British homes. Kitty Petra will be working for Siemens, the company that is manufacturing and installing the turbines, transporting commissioning technicians to the site. She will work out of Grimsby on a 24 hour / 7 day basis, returning to port for shift changes, for at least the next 4 months.

Leo Hambro Commercial Director at Tidal Transit says: “This contract will present Kitty Petra and her crew with a demanding schedule, but one that she is very capable of fulfilling. It will also be an exciting phase for the company, as it is the first time that all our offshore wind farm PTVs will be working in the North Sea. Ginny Louise, Eden Rose and Tia Elizabeth are all working at the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm out of Wells-next-the-Sea.”
