Tidal Transit Backs Westermost Rough O&M with Two CTVs

Tidal Transit’s crew transfer vessels (CTVs) Ginny Louise and Eden Rose started supporting operation and maintenance works at the Westermost Rough offshore wind farm on 27 January, after the UK-based CTV provider signed a charter contract with Ørsted. The two vessels, from Ørsted’s O&M Base in Grimsby, will be deployed on the 35-turbine offshore wind farm until at least March 2020.

Tidal Transit’s Commercial Director Leo Hambro said: “Westermost Rough is a site we know well, having previously worked there for Siemens and 3Sun during both the construction and early operation stages of the wind farm’s development. We are thrilled to have been now been awarded this long-term contract from the operator, Ørsted, cementing our position within their East Coast Hub.”

Tidal Transit stated that it will celebrate the charter with the world’s leading offshore wind developer together with its fellow members of the Grimsby Renewable Partnership (GRP), which supported the company’s work from the Port of Grimsby in the past.

This is not the only Grimsby-oriented activity Tidal Transit plans. Namely, the company’s team will join the Ørsted Great Grimsby 10K run this summer. “We will be entering a Tidal Transit team in the Ørsted Great Grimsby 10K run in July so expect to see our crews training around the docks on weather days,” Hambro said.

The 210MW Westermost Rough offshore wind farm, located approximately 8km off the East coast of Yorkshire near Withernsea, features 35 Siemens Gamesa 6MW wind turbines and has been operational since 2015.
