Seacat, Siemens Gamesa Add a Bit of Mischief and Magic to Beatrice Works
Seacat Services has been awarded a new charter agreement for the Beatrice offshore wind farm, following two previously signed contracts under which two of its vessels are already supporting the works at the project site off Scotland.
This time, the company signed a 2-year contract with Siemens Gamesa for Seacat Mischief and Seacat Magic to be deployed on the project during the commissioning and operations and maintenance (O&M) phases.
The two vessels will operate out of Wick Harbour in Scotland, with Seacat Mischief arriving on site in mid-August, and Seacat Magic in April 2019.
Seacat Services’ vessel already working at Beatrice are Seacat Resolute, which has just commenced a 9-month construction charter for Siemens Gamesa, and Seacat Intrepid, which remains on charter for the project developer Beatrice Offshore Wind Limited (BOWL).
Seacat Mischief and Seacat Magic have recently returned from Ørsted’s Race Bank project, where, together with Seacat Courageous and Seacat Volunteer, they completed more than 27,000 crew and equipment transfers, covering a total distance exceeding two trips around the globe, the vessel owner said.
