Seaway Heavy Lifting Sets Up Galloper OWF Substation

Seaway Heavy Lifting, wholly-owned subsidiary of Subsea 7, has completed installation of the Galloper offshore wind farm substation and associated jacket foundation.

The company’s heavy-lift vessel ‘Oleg Strashnov’ executed the job last Friday, May 12.

Heerema Fabrication Group has manufactured the both components for the 336MW offshore wind farm being constructed approximately 30 kilometers off the coast of Suffolk.

Construction of the Galloper OWF is being led on behalf of the project partners by innogy SE. The project is said to have an investment potential of around £1.5 billion.

The foundations setup for the offshore wind farm was delivered in late March by GeoSea using its ‘Innovation’ jack-up installation vessel.

Subsea power cable installation specialist VBMS is carrying out the cabling works utilising its two vessels the Ndurance and the Stemat Spirit.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
