Seajacks Awarded Dogger Bank Windfarm Contracts

Seajacks UK Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eneti Inc. (NYSE: NETI) and a leading provider of installation, maintenance and accommodation jack up vessels to the offshore wind sector have signed three new contracts with Dogger Bank Windfarm (“Dogger Bank”).

Dogger Bank will utilise one of the Seajacks NG2500X class vessels to accommodate technicians during the offshore substation platform hook-up and commissioning on all three phases of the Dogger Bank Wind Farm construction.

The contract will commence in Q2 2023 and will see the vessel return to the wind farm in both 2024 and 2025.

Blair Ainslie, CEO, commented: “We are delighted that Dogger Bank Wind Farm has awarded these contracts to Seajacks UK. Our self-propelled NG2500X jack up vessels are a tried and tested method of minimising weather downtime when commissioning offshore substation platforms.

Prior to contract commencement, we will further optimise the vessel for substation work by boosting the onboard accommodation to a total of 140 persons.

This new investment in the vessel will maximise local and UK content, because we will undertake the upgrade works at PD Ports Teesport UK facility. The project will also be managed by the onshore teams who work out of our Great Yarmouth headquarters.”

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is located in the North Sea, 130km off the North East coast of England. Dogger Bank will create enough installed capacity to power 6 million UK homes and when completed will become the World’s largest offshore wind farm, generating 3.6GW of electricity.

The project is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, Equinor and Eni Plenitude.
