Great Yarmouth-based Seajacks adds another vessel to its fleet
The managing director of Great Yarmouth-based Seajacks said the delivery of its new vessel has cemented the firm as one of the leading operators of self-propelled jack-up vessels in Europe.
The company - which has grown is set to move into a new office housing more than 100 staff in the Great Yarmouth enterprise zone - commissioned the Seajacks Zaratan in May 2010.
It can accommodate 90 people and will start work on the Meerwind wind farm in the German Bight in September.
Since it started operating in 2009 Seajacks has installed more than 225 wind turbines on high profile project sites such as Sheringham Shoal, Walney and Greater Gabbard.
The jack-up vessel was built by Lamprell Energy at the Hamriyah facility in Dubai. It means the company now has three self-propelled vessels. Seajacks Kraken and Seajacks Leviathan arrived in 2009.
Blair Ainslie, managing director of Seajacks UK, said, 'Seajacks is delighted to announce the arrival of Seajacks Zaratan, our third self-propelled vessel delivered on time and on budget from Lamprell.' He added: 'This milestone underscores our commitment to provide the highest quality of services and equipment to the offshore energy sector and cements our position as one of the leading operators of self-propelled jack-ups in Europe.'
