James Fisher Lands MeyGen O&M Deal

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has been granted preferred supplier status for a 5-year period in connection with the operations and maintenance (O&M) of the MeyGen Phase 1A tidal turbines.

Three turbines have been supplied by Andritz Hydro Hammerfest, and the fourth by Atlantis, each with a rated power of 1.5 MW. Three of the turbines are being installed and connected later this year by JFMS.

Additionally, MeyGen has agreed, subject to terms, to secure the services of JFMS’s HF4 tidal energy vessel, to underpin delivery of the preferred O&M supplier scope.

David Taaffe, project director at MeyGen, said: “James Fisher has been involved with us in the development of this significant tidal energy project since the start and was the obvious partner for MeyGen’s O&M services. The expertise JFMS has demonstrated in challenging marine and subsea operations gives us complete confidence in the ongoing success of this exciting project.”

The HF4 vessel has been designed to dynamically position and maintain station in currents up to 10 knots, such as those encountered at the MeyGen site. Equipped with a 250T A-Frame, the HF4 will, according to JFMS, be able to undertake all of the Phase 1A offshore O&M tasks, as well as providing construction capability for the broader tidal sector.
