Seajacks Zaratan Placing Monopile

Specialised subsea construction jack-up vessel 'Seajacks Zaratan' continues installation at a rapid pace at the North Sea Meerwind Offshore Park.

Seajack Zaratan collected the three 675t steel structures from the construction port of Cuxhaven on the evening of Thursday 11th April. After completing the 110km transit to the German Bight site in 7 hours, Zaratan was jacked up at the first location ready to commence operations on Friday lunchtime and had completed hammering of the third pile by midnight on Saturday, resulting in a net installation time of 35 hours.

The subsea construction vessel is currently in port loading the last batch of monopiles, which will conclude this phase of construction. The owners say that such an impressive performance by the new installation vessel and its experienced crew means that monopile installation is scheduled to be completed on schedule by the end of April.
