Seaway Heavy Lifting to Install Elia's Offshore SwitchYard Platform

Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) has secured a contract to install the Offshore SwitchYard (OSY) platform for Elia's Modular Offshore Grid (MOG) project in the Belgian North Sea.

The contract includes, but is not limited to, installation, engineering, providing cargo barge, transport to the offshore location, and demobilization of the installation spread.

The installation of the jacket and the piles is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018, and the installation of the topside is slated for the first half of 2019.

The OSY platform will be situated up to 45 kilometres off Belgian North Sea coast, in water depths between 30 and 35 metres. The platform is designed by Ramboll Danmark AS.

The Modular Offshore Grid project is aimed at connecting offshore wind farms to a high-voltage substation located on the offshore platform, which will, in turn, be connected to the onshore grid.

Elia’s board of directors approved the EUR 400 million MOG project in April 2017.
