The work to install 67 Siemens 6MW turbines at the Dudgeon offshore windfarm has been completed in a project which one operator calls its toughest to date.

Denmark's A2SEA completed the work using its Sea Challenger vessel at the 202MW windfarm on behalf of Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft.

“We would like to send a special thanks and congratulations to the entire team behind the operation for a smooth project execution as well as an outstanding safety performance,” said Michael Glavind, CEO at A2SEA.

Master Jack Amtsbiller of the Sea Challenger said has been the vessel’s toughest project to date.

“The soil conditions on Dudgeon have been one of our biggest challenges to date. The soil cannot be compared to any other soil we have been jacking on, so we have gained very useful experience and knowledge from this project, too.”

He added that Dudgeon has been a very good project for the team.

“Statoil have been very engaged, they have supported us in the safest and most efficient project execution. We always strive to ensure a safe and efficient project execution, and there was always time to work safe.”

The Dudgeon Offshore windfarm is owned by Statoil (35%), Masdar (35%) and Statkraft (30%) and is situated 32 km off the coast of the seaside town of Cromer in North Norfolk in the UK.

When fully commissioned this year, Dudgeon will provide well over 400,000 UK households with renewable power.
