Tidal Transit’s personnel transfer vessel (PTV) Tia Elizabeth is following its sister vessel, Kitty Petra, to fulfill a contract at Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm off the Welsh coast.
While the contract for Kitty Petra ended in September 2014, after which she moved on to the Westermost Rough offshore wind farm, the contract for Tia Elizabeth, due to begin on 16th April 2015, will run for the next two years.
Tidal Transit’s four PTVs have been in constant use by wind farms in the UK’s coastal waters since their arrival from the Spanish shipyard where they were built.
“Our second and third vessels, Eden Rose and Tia Elizabeth, began their working lives on the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm, working out of the port of Wells-next-the-Sea, which is very local to us,” says Tidal Transit’s Commercial Director, Leo Hambro. “However, now that some of these first contracts are coming to an end, our vessels are becoming available for work further afield. We are looking forward to working with Gwynt y Môr Offshore again on what will be the second largest operating offshore wind farm in the world.”
