Siem Offshore has signed a contract with Seaway 7, the renewables business unit of Subsea 7
The contract is for the use of one of Siem Offshore’s offshore subsea construction vessels (OSCV) commencing Q4 2021.
The vessel will undertake walk-to-work activity in the North Sea for 300 days firm plus options, supporting the construction phase of the Seagreen offshore windfarm.
Siem Offshore said, “We are pleased to be awarded another contract in the offshore wind market, further building upon our experience and extensive track record in the renewables market.
“From a holistic market perspective, it is also positive to witness longer firm durations securing utilisation over the winter period, which has been a challenge in previous years. As a comparison, this is the longest firm contract we have signed for our OSCVs since 2018.”
Located off Scotland’s east coast, the Seagreen development is a 1,075-MW offshore windfarm. The £3.00Bn (US$4.17Bn) offshore wind project will comprise 114 wind turbines. The project reached a final investment decision and financial close in June 2020, when oil major Total bought a 51% stake in the project from SSE Renewables.
Siem Offshore has also been awarded a six-month extension for the anchor handling tug supply vessel Siem Topaz, securing utilisation for the vessel until February 2022.
