Seajacks, the UK jack-up liftboat operator, has delivered its Leviathan vessel to Fluor Ltd on time and on budget, marking the start of its offshore charter works at Greater Gabbard, the offshore wind energy development under construction.
Fluor, working for project owners Airtricity and npower renewables, will install 140 turbines at the site, 25 kilometres off the East coast of England in the outer Thames Estuary. The Leviathan vessel will sail to Harwich International Port in Essex where the jack-up will prepare for hook-up and commissioning of an in-field substation. Thereafter it will proceed with turbine installation work in the North Sea.
