One of the largest offshore wind farms in the UK, Barrow is capable of powering some 75,000 homes, and saving around 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, compared with fossil fuels.
Construction began in 2005, and by mid-2006, the 30 Vestas V90 turbines were operating at full capacity. To support the construction phase, we supplied a purpose-built catamaran, "XPLORER", together with an 8m Delta water-jet RIB, and both vessels continue to provide logistical support.
Located just off the coast of Northumberland, Blyth Wind Farm was the UK's first offshore installation, featuring what were, back in 2000, two of the world's biggest turbines. North Sea Logistics provided support right from the start, and has done so throughout the continuing O&M phase.
Now back in full production after lengthy repairs to the undersea transmission cable, the Blyth Wind Farm has provided us with invaluable experience of working in one of the UK's most challenging offshore locations. North Sea Logistics has signed recently a new contract to supply vessels to EON.
Rhyl Flats Offshore Wind Farm is a 25 turbine wind farm approximately 8 km north east of Llandudno in North Wales. It was Wales' second offshore wind farm and the third offshore wind farm to be built within Liverpool Bay. It has a maximum rated output of 90 MW.
The Rhyl Flats project was initially developed by Celtic Offshore Wind Limited. Offshore construction work at Rhyl Flats began in July 2007 and the completed project was officially opened on December 2009. North Sea Logistics has been on site and proudly providing quality services to this project every day since. This project is supported by our Pura Vida and Excalibur vessels.
