Freddie S spent a day performing multiple 10 knot passes around and through the wind farm, Windwave Workboats said.

This is not the first time for Freddie S to work on the Westermost Rough. In June 2016, Siemens chartered the WFSV to provide 24-hour jack-up support during maintenance works.

The Westermost Rough wind farm comprises 35 Siemens SWT-6.0-154 6MW wind turbines installed some 8 kilometres off the Yorkshire Coast, covering a total area of 35km2. The wind farm was inaugurated in July 2015.

The 210MW Westermost Rough is a joint venture between DONG Energy (50%), Marubeni Corporation (25%) and the UK Green Investment Bank (25%).
