Eden Rose Wraps Up Dogger Bank and Hornsea Gigs

Tidal Transit’s crew transfer vessel (CTV), Eden Rose, has completed its latest charter contracts for Dogger Bank and Hornsea offshore wind farm sites, where it supported upgrade works on met mast monitoring equipment.

According to Tidal Transit, Eden Rose’s deployment on the two projects, which included five visits to the sites, has given the company a chance to prove the capabilities of its vessels in working on projects to be built much farther from the coast, since the charter contracts so far included the wind farms mainly within 20 miles of the coast.

“At up to 125 miles offshore, both sites pose their own sets of access challenges. Our vessels are designed to operate in the rougher seas that are found so far from landfall, and Eden Rose, the vessel which undertook all five visits, performed exceptionally well,” Tidal Transit Commercial Director, Leo Hambro, said.

“Recent announcements from Dong Energy and Vattenfall regarding their Hornsea 3 and Norfolk Vanguard offshore wind farm projects serve as a timely reminder that the UK’s Round 3 offshore wind farms are getting ever closer to becoming a reality,” he added.
