Leask Marine Helps Maersk Connector Ground at Morecambe Bay

Leask Marine’s vessel C-Fenna supported DeepOcean’s Maersk Connector during recent work on DONG Energy’s Walney Extension offshore wind project.

The C-Fenna team was for the past month on anchor handling and tow assist duty for the Maersk Connector during the vessel’s first engineered grounding and export cable pull-in operations at Morecambe Bay.

Matt Murray, the Maersk Connector Project Engineer for DeepOcean, said: ”I would like to take this opportunity to thank the crew of the C-Fenna for an excellent job that has been performed on both Maersk Connector Grounding anchor operations, they have shown great level of experience and professionalism throughout the campaigns.”

The C-Fenna team is now moving onto the south coast of England for their next offshore wind farm project, Leask Marine said.

The Walney Extension wind farm is being constructed in the Irish Sea, some 35km northwest from the Fleetwood and Blackpool coast.

The wind farm will consist of 40 MHI Vestas and 47 7MW Siemens wind turbines, scheduled to be commissioned in 2019.
