Sea Challenger Loads First Dudgeon Kit

A2SEA’s wind farm installation vessel Sea Challenger is preparing to sail out of the port of Hull with the first load of turbine components to be installed at the 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm.

Sea Challenger was loaded with components of four Siemens 6MW turbines on Wednesday, 4 January.

The vessel will make 17 runs between the load out port in Hull and the installation site some 32 kilometres off North Norfolk to install all of the wind farm’s 67 turbines.

Sea Challenger had also served as an accommodation vessel on the project from September 2016 to the end of the year.

The Dudgeon offshore wind farm is a GBP 1.5 billion project being jointly developed by Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft, expected to be fully commissioned by late 2017.

Statoil is developing the Dudgeon offshore wind farm and will continue as its operator when it starts generating electricity in early 2017.
