A replacement wind turbine installation vessel will arrive on site at the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm in February to help reduce delays to the 317MW project’s forecast schedule following a period of unseasonally poor weather.

The self-propelled 76m jack-up vessel Seajacks Leviathan, owned by Great Yarmouth-based firm Seajacks and operated out of the local port, has been contracted until the end of July for the Scira Offshore Energy project. The wind farm now has 20 of the 88 Siemens 3.6MW turbines installed, and has been generating power since the start of August, however progress has been slower than anticipated due to the weather conditions and rough seas, which have been significantly worse this year than statistically average in the Greater Wash. The Seajacks Leviathan will now join the 76m GMS Endeavour, a technically similar turbine installation vessel, in carrying two turbines at a time from Great Yarmouth to the site, 20 kilometres off the coast of north Norfolk. She will replace the 91m purpose-built jack-up barge SEA JACK which will soon move to another offshore wind farm development after four months on the Sheringham Shoal project.
