Dudgeon offshore wind farm’s substation topside is getting ready to sail, according to Siemens’ social media pages.
The four-deck topside has been built by Sembmarine SLP, and will go through weighing and load out this month before it sails away from the yard in August.
The jacket for the substation was also built by Sembmarine and loaded onto a barge in April before it commenced its trip to the offshore construction site located some 32 kilometres off the coast of North Norfolk.
The first foundations at the wind farm site were installed in early April and at the beginning of this month, Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm Limited (DOWL) reported that the crane vessel Oleg Strashnov had installed half of the 67 foundations.
Dudgeon will comprise 67 Siemens 6MW turbines, and is expected to be commissioned by early 2017.
