SeaRoc appointed Principal Contractor on EDF Energy Renewable’s Teesside Offshore Wind Farm

Friday, Jan 18, 2013

 International marine engineering company SeaRoc has been appointed Principal Contractor to oversee the completion of the offshore wind farm construction at Teesside Offshore Wind Farm on behalf of EDF Energy Renewables. The project has now also reached an important milestone with the installation of the project’s first turbine.

On 1st January 2013, SeaRoc was appointed by EDF Energy Renewables as Principal Contractor to undertake the remaining planning, management and co-ordination of work on the project, involving the installation of the 27 WTGs and towers, TP energisation & cable terminations, marine coordination utilising in-house management tool - SeaPlanner, scour protection and array commissioning.

Project Director Toby Mead commented: “In 2012 SeaRoc delivered a raft of installation projects across both Offshore Wind and Tidal sectors; to kick off 2013 with this key project puts a very definite marker in the sand for the future of the company”. The SeaRoc team will be assisted by staff from sister company, Natural Power, for the site management works.

SeaRoc, on behalf of EDF Energy Renewables, and working closely with sister company Natural Power, has now completed the installation of the tower, nacelle and rotor blades of the first of the 27, 2.3MW wind turbine generators to be erected on the 62MW scheme.

Commissioning tests on the new installation will be carried out ahead of electricity generation beginning in the forthcoming weeks. Installation of the turbines is being undertaken with the MPI Adventure, a six leg jack up vessel, owned by the Stokesley-based MPI Offshore.

The wind farm, located 1.5km off the North East coast at Redcar, is the first UK offshore development undertaken by EDF Energy Renewables.
