Seacat Ranger, a catamaran owned and operated by Seacat Services, has been chartered by Galloper Wind Farm Ltd. Under the terms of a 3-year contract with Galloper, Seacat Ranger will be deployed at the offshore wind farm from August this year.
In September, she will be joined by sister vessels, Seacat Liberty and Seacat Vigilant. This follows a separate 2-year agreement signed in May with turbine supplier Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (Siemens Gamesa). Galloper is currently in construction off the Suffolk coast and innogy SE is leading the construction and operation of the 336MW wind farm on behalf of the project partners. Siemens Gamesa are supplying and maintaining the turbines and both Siemens and Galloper use crew transfer vessels to access the offshore wind turbines and substation. Seacat Ranger and her crew will handle a broad scope of work, encompassing both technician and equipment transfers.
