Jumbo Offshore installs 100th transition piece on Greater Gabbard windfarmProjects and Operations // July 28, 2010
Jumbo Javelin installs a transition piece on the Greater Gabbard windfarm.
The DP2 heavy lift vessel Jumbo Javelin has installed its 100th transition piece for the Greater Gabbard offshore windfarm off the UK’s south-east coast.
For this project, Jumbo’s work scope includes transport, installation, leveling and grouting of the TP’s.
Close cooperation between all parties (client Fluor, Jumbo’s crew, the project team and subcontractors) has resulted in a record-breaking installation performance.
So far, the job has taken less than 3.5 months. With another 30 transition pieces to go, Jumbo expects to complete installation work in the second half of August, well before the scheduled completion date.
