Rhenus Offshore Logistics UK recently completed its fifteenth and final cargo run to the offshore substation at the Galloper offshore wind farm.
The DP2 equipped Thor Express platform supply vessel was used for the operations.
The last cargo run, completed on the 27th July, facilitated the clearing of all items used during the commissioning phase of the wind farm. A total of 22 offshore containers were lifted from the substation ranging from generators to hazardous waste, and returned to Great Yarmouth port before being sorted at the Rhenus Great Yarmouth supply base.
Due to limited PSV availability in the UK we made the decision bring the Thor Express from Germany to the UK for this operation. This cargo run is an excellent example of the flexibility of Rhenus, we managed to avoid high vessel market rates by utilising an asset already on time charter with us.”
