Tidal Transit Duo at Westermost Rough

A second Tidal Transit personnel transfer vessel [PTV], Ginny Louise, has joined its sister vessel Eden Rose at the Westermost Rough offshore wind farm situated 8km off the Yorkshire Coast, north of Hull.

The two vessels are contracted to Dawson Energy and Siemens, two of the companies delivering contracts to the overall project. The charter to Dawson Energy, to carry out the first 500 hour service of a number of Siemens wind turbines, began on 01 June 2015; the Siemens charter began on 15 June.

“We are no strangers to Westermost Rough,” comments Leo Hambro, Commercial Director at Tidal Transit. “One of our other vessels, Kitty Petra, has also worked on site. It is testament to the reliability and performance of our PTVs and their crews that companies working on the site want to utilise our comfortable and well-equipped vessels. We have carried over 45,000 safe transfers of technicians to turbines over the 3 years – a record that we are all proud of.”

Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm consists of 35 6MW capacity turbines on a site which covers a total area of 35km². Now complete, it will provide enough electricity to power around 150,000 UK homes every year.
