Seacat gets Triton Knoll vessel support contract

UK crewboat operator Seacat Services has entered into a long-term contract to support the construction phase of the Triton Knoll wind farm offshore Lincolnshire in the North Sea.

The contract, which includes options for further vessel charters, will initially see two of Seacat Services’ catamarans operating out of Triton Knoll’s new Grimsby construction base, providing specialist crew transfer and logistical support at the 90-turbine, 857MW project.

With offshore construction set to commence in the first quarter of 2020, the first of the two vessels will begin preparation works at the project this winter, with the second set to follow in April 2020. Both vessels are set to remain on the project until the end of 2021.

Once fully operational, Triton Knoll will be capable of generating enough renewable energy for the equivalent of over 800,000 UK households.
