SHL Chooses IHC IQIP Equipment for Dudgeon OWF Work

Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) has selected IHC IQIP to provide piling and handling equipment for its operations at the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project in the UK.

SHL’s main responsibilities cover the storage, transportation and installation of 67 monopiles, transition pieces, and an offshore substation consisting of a jacket and topside.

“We are delighted that our partnership with IHC remains as strong as ever,” says SHL Project Manager Tom de Haan. “Thanks to its innovative and proven technology, we are confident that the risk of any breakdown during the project is minimised.”

IHC IQIP has supplied equipment for the project, including a 1,400t UET (upending tool) for use on board the Royal IHC-built heavy lift vessel Oleg Strashnov. An S-3000 Hydrohammer has also been chosen by SHL for use on board.

SHL has been awarded the contract for the foundation and substation installation by Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited (owned by Statoil, Statkraft and Masdar).

A total of 67 turbines, and a single 1,800t offshore substation will be installed at the site and provide power to more than 410,000 homes. The monopiles will vary in size from 60-78 meters in length and 600-1,000 tonnes in weight. The installation work is expected to be completed by August 2016.
