    Guard vessel now in operation on Sheringham Shoal windfarm site

    Projects and Operations // July 27, 2010

    A guard vessel is now in operation on the Sheringham Shoal offshore windfarm to ensure the safety of marine traffic around the foundation installation sites and along the export cable corridor.

    The 36m Jadi has been contracted from UK-based marine solutions company, Offshore Marine Management.

    Her key role is to assist the heavy-lift vessel Svanen, which is now installing the monopiles and transition pieces, by alerting other vessels such as fishing and sailing boats, of the location of its eight anchor buoys and ensuring they stay clear of the construction area.

    Jadi will also assist the export cable laying vessel Stemat Spirit when the export cable laying operation begins in late August by ensuring the path is clear for the cable laying operations.

    The export cable installation will begin at Weybourne Hope, just west of the coastal town of Sheringham, and continue for approximately six weeks.
