The sail away of the 1,500-ton jacket is scheduled for next week, Heerema said.

HFG is responsible for the procurement, fabrication and offshore hook-up and commissioning of the OSY platform. The platform’s topside will be fabricated at the Zwijndrecht yard and is expected to be installed in March 2019.

The jacket and the topside will be installed by Seaway Heavy Lifting.

The OSY platform is a part of Elia’s Modular Offshore Grid (MOG) which will connect four offshore wind farms to the Belgian grid. The wind farms are Rentel, Northwester 2, and Mermaid and Seastar (now the Seamade project).

Located some 40km off the Zeebrugge coast, MOG is expected to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2019.
