Tidal Transit has been awarded a charter contract by Ørsted which will see two of its fleet of crew transfer vessels working at Westermost Rough Offshore Farm until at least March 2020.

Working from Ørsted's O&M Base in Grimsby, Ginny Louise and Eden Rose will support the operation and maintenance of the 35 turbine Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm located 8km off the Yorkshire coast, north of Hull.

Tidal Transit's Commercial Director Leo Hambro is delighted with this new charter contract, which commenced on 27 January 2018, saying:

"Westermost Rough is a site we know well, having previously worked there for Siemens and 3Sun during both the construction and early operation stages of the wind farm's development. We are thrilled to have been now been awarded this long-term contract from the operator, Ørsted, cementing our position within their East Coast Hub.

"Here at Tidal Transit, we are proud of our reputation and this new contract is testament to our vessels, our client service and the reliability and professionalism of our crews."

Ørsted has nine operational offshore wind farms in UK coastal waters, with four more under construction; worldwide it has built more offshore wind farms than any other company.
