SeaRoc, part of the Natural Power group, says it will manage the supply, installation and commissioning of two lattice meteorological towers in accordance with a specification provided by Forewind, the consortium responsible for developing Round 3 of the U.K. offshore wind farm site Dogger Bank.
Under the agreement, SeaRoc will provide both design and third-party approvals for the mast and manage all procurement and fabrication. The company will then manage logistics and transportation, installation at the platform, and commissioning of equipment both onshore and offshore. SeaRoc will also manage all of the health and safety requirements in relation to the masts.
The announcement is part of a wider offering by Fred Olsen United AS to supply Forewind with the suction bucket foundation designed by Universal Foundation A/S and fabricated by Belfast shipyard Harland and Wolff. The foundation design was identified as part of the Carbon Trust's collaborative Offshore Wind Accelerator program.
