General – Hybrid SOV
Last week North Star took delivery of another hybrid SOV vessel leaving the shores of Aberdeen, with the Grampian Derwent setting sail for Dogger Bank, having completed final commissioning testing by the technical and rescue teams at North Star.
Michael Reid, SOV new build lead said: “I’m extremely proud having overseen the successful build and delivery of the Grampian Derwent on route from North Star’s home harbour of Aberdeen to the Dogger Bank Wind Farm and the Port of Tyne. This is the second offshore wind support vessel to be delivered to the site, with more still to come!”
The ship now heads to the wind farm, and the team at SSE Renewables and Equinor, where it will perform onsite CSOV duties before transferring to her long term role of 10 years or more O&M of turbines and HVDC platform support.
