After an initial four months working at the Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm, Siemens has already extended its charter contract for Tidal Transit’s Kitty Petra passenger transfer vessel (PTV) from the end of January 2014 to the end of April 2015.
Tidal Transit’s Commercial Director Leo Hambro said:
“When Kitty Petra and her crew started working at Westermost Rough, we knew the 24 hour/7 day per week nature of the contract would be demanding. The vessel, the crew and the support team have all risen to the challenge and I believe this is reflected by this contract extension.”
Siemens is manufacturing and installing the 35 6MW turbines that will comprise this Round 2 UK offshore wind farm which is being developed by Dong Energy. It will produce enough clean energy to power around 200,000 British homes once it is completed later this year.
