Seajacks Scylla All Set for East Anglia One

Wind farm installation vessel Seajacks Scylla has completed maintenance checks and is ready for its deployment at the East Anglia One offshore wind project in the UK.

The 139-meter-long vessel completed a deadweight survey, incline test and crane maintenance, and is expected to begin working on the 714MW wind farm at the end of July or the beginning of August.

Seajacks Scylla will be in charge of installing the jacket foundations at the East Anglia One project, under a contract that Seajacks and Van Oord secured last year.

According to Seajacks, the vessel is specifically designed for deep water and large wind farm components and is the only vessel capable of carrying up to four 12MW turbines at the same time. With its 105-meter-long legs, it allows the installation of components in water depths of up to 65m.

“It is great to see that Scylla is in peak condition and ready to take on her next challenge. She and her crew had fantastic success recently working on the Walney Extension project, and to complete this so far ahead of schedule is testament to her incredible capabilities as an installation vessel,” Blair Ainslie, CEO of Seajacks, said.

The vessel Bokalift 1 recently began the installation of the jacket foundations at East Anglia One some 45km off Lowestoft. The wind farm’s 102 7MW Siemens Gamesa turbines are scheduled for commissioning in 2020.
