DEME Offshore’s jack-ups Sea Installer and Sea Challenger are transporting the turbines from Siemens Gamesa’s facilities in the Port of Hull and installing them at the site some 89 kilometres north-east of Grimsby, the UK.

Sea Challenger installed the first wind turbine at the site at the end of May.
