Lowestoft-based crew transfer vessel (CTV) owner and operator Turner Iceni has been awarded a contract exceeding GBP 4 million by ScottishPower Renewables to provide support for the construction of the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.

Turner Iceni will provide CTVs for the construction and commissioning phases of the GBP 2.5 billion wind farm.

“We are now only a few weeks away from the first components of the windfarm being installed offshore on the East Anglia ONE project, after several months of good progress being made on the onshore cable and substation work,” Charlie Jordan, ScottishPower Renewables Project Director for East Anglia ONE, said.

”Turner Iceni will have an important role to play in making sure that our offshore work programme is successfully delivered, and the fact that they have a strong team based in Lowestoft was an added bonus for us. With this contract in place, and work due to start soon on our new Operations and Maintenance facility, it is fantastic to see activity levels increasing in Lowestoft to support the windfarm.”

Turner Iceni will support ScottishPower Renewables and its contractors 365 days per year, utilising up to three vessels, helping to support 50 jobs.

The scope of the contract will include the transfer of light plant, tools, spares and personnel to and from the offshore wind turbines, the offshore substation and met mast locations.

Richard Thurlow at Turner Iceni said: “Both vessels ScottishPower have chartered were built in Great Yarmouth, will be crewed by local people and will be operated from our Lowestoft base close to the new East Anglia One Operations and Maintenance facility. From the outset Scottish Power Renewables set a very high UK content target for the project, we are pleased to be able to help towards achieving this goal.”
