EDF Energy Renewables has appointed marine engineering company SeaRoc as the principal contractor to oversee the completion of the construction of the Teesside Offshore Wind Farm.

The offshore wind project, located 1.5 km off the northeast coast at Redcar, will be EDF Energy Renewables' first offshore development.

SeaRoc will undertake the remaining planning, management and coordination of work on the project, including the installation of the 27 wind turbines and towers, cable terminations, marine coordination, scour protection and array commissioning.

The SeaRoc team will be assisted by staff from its sister company, Natural Power, for the site management works. Working closely with Natural Power, SeaRoc has completed the installation of the tower, nacelle and rotor blades of the first of the 62 MW project’s 27 2.3 MW wind turbines.

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

Installation work on the remaining wind turbines continues and is expected to be completed this spring.
