Red7Marine Offshore concludes diving projectProjects and Operations // November 11, 2014
Diving and subsea engineering specialist Red7Marine Offshore has concluded a successful six-month diving campaign at London Array, the world’s largest offshore windfarm.
Winter weather prevented completion of the work at one of the 175 turbines in the Thames Estuary; the small amount of remaining work will be completed with other work planned for 2015.
Red7 Reel led the work with 24-hour diving support by the dynamic positioning 2 (DP2) vessels Relume and VOS Shine, working with a number of rigid hulled inflatable boats (RHIBs) and small craft for shallow water work, including Red7Marine Offshore owned purpose-built daughter craft COM III, resulting in more than 1,300 dives during subsea work as well as many surface activities.
The construction orientated workscope included installation and inspection activities within the wind farm and its export cable corridor.
Red7Marine worked closely with both London Array and other on-site contractors, for smooth programming and minimal operational reduction for the turbines.
