UK company Tidal Transit has contracts for two of its Wind Farm Support Vessels (WFSV) extended

The first contract to be extended was for Eden Rose, under contract to Scira Offshore Energy Limited, which is developing the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm, an 88-turbine wind farm between 9 and 17 miles off the coast of Norfolk.

The second extension was for sister-WFSV Ginny Louise for a continuation of work on the 140-turbine Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm off the Suffolk coast.

Tidal Transit say that both vessels are high specification and purpose-designed for use by companies involved in the planning, development and construction of offshore wind farms in the Greater Wash and southern North Sea. They have been specifically designed to cope with the tough working condition and rough seas encountered by the burgeoning North Sea energy industry.
