Following announcement of the award of a Preferred Supplier Agreement on 28th November 2019, OHT Alfa Lift has now signed the contract for the transport and installation of foundations for the first phase of Dogger Bank Wind Farm, Dogger Bank A.
The project will be the monopile installation debut for OHT’s new build vessel Alfa Lift which is currently under construction at CMHI’S shipyard in China. Alfa Lift will transport the monopile foundations and transition pieces to the offshore site, more than 130km off the north-east coast of England, and install them in water depths up to 35 metres, utilising the vessel’s 3,000-tonne crane. The foundations are expected to be installed at Dogger Bank A between 2022 and 2023. The Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being developed by SSE Renewables and Equinor, with first power expected in 2023. The contract is subject to the project’s final investment decision.
