SeaRenergy has completed a two year construction site safety contract for the Veja Mate offshore wind farm. The service agreement started in early 2016 and included provision, installation, maintenance, as well as the recovery of 5 cardinal marker buoys and 3 mooring buoys.
The cardinal marker buoys were required to mark the outside boundaries of the construction site. The design features of the 5 buoys, model Sealite Trident 2600, allowed stowing and transport in an upright position. This resulted in safer and easier handling and less space needed on the service vessel and in the harbour. Permanent control of the buoys was possible through integrated submittal of data via satellite regarding geographical position, battery voltage, and other operational parameters. Maintenance campaigns were scheduled and conducted twice a year. The recovered buoys are now in Emden (Germany) for a thorough refurbishment and will then be available for other projects.
