Sea Jack Reserved for Thanet Offshore Wind Project

Tuesday, October 09, 2007
Thanet Offshore Wind Limited (TOW) has signed a Reservation Agreement with A2SEA A/S for the long term use of the vessel the SEA JACK for the main construction periods for the Thanet project. Starting in autumn 2008 the Sea Jack will be used to install the wind turbine foundations and will then continue with the erection of the turbines in the summer and autumn of 2009. Sea Jack was specifically built to service the growing offshore wind market. At over 90 metres long, 33 metres beam and with a powerful Manitowoc M1200 Ringer crane, the barge is an ideal platform for large scale offshore wind projects such as Thanet. Thanet received all of the consents required to construct and operate the scheme in December 2006, the first UK Round 2 project to achieve this milestone. It is expected to be the first Round 2 offshore wind farm to be built in the UK and is targeted to commence power generation in 2009.
