Seacat Services is working to support construction and commissioning at Race Bank under the terms of a two-year, four-vessel charter signed in April 2016.

So far, Seacat Volunteer, Seacat Courageous, Seacat Magic and Seacat Mischief completed more than 27,000 crew and equipment transfers, covering a total distance exceeding two trips around the globe, Seacat Services said.

Engie Fabricom and Iemants were in charge of supplying two substations to the wind farm, with Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) installing Race Bank 02 (ROW 02), the first substation, in August 2016, and the second, Race Bank 01 (ROW 01), in March last year.

Race Bank, being built out of the company’s construction base in the Grimsby Fish Docks, comprises 91 Siemens 6MW turbines recently installed by A2SEA’s jack-up vessel Sea Installer.

The wind farm is expected to be fully commissioned early this year.
