The newly built Bibby WaveMaster 1 Service Operations Vessel has arrived at Harwich International Port in preparation for its work on the Galloper offshore wind farm off the UK's east coast.

The vessel was chartered by James Fisher Marine Services, Galloper’s main offshore marine services contractor, following a selection process which has secured the vessel for a three month contract with options to extend to support the offshore commissioning phase of the works.

It will be the vessel’s first significant charter, and the first time innogy have used such a vessel in UK waters during the commissioning phase of a project. The UK registered vessel was built by Damen on behalf of its owners Bibby Marine Services.

The construction of Galloper is scheduled to be complete by Spring 2018. Once operational it is expected to meet the needs of approximately 300,000 households.

Swire Blue Ocean's jack-up installation vessel Pacific Orca is installing the turbines at the site, operating from the Outer Harbour of the Port of Great Yarmouth. Fred. Olsen Windcarrier's jack-up vessel, Bold Tern has also been mobilised to the site to ensure timely completion and will be on contract for at least 30 days with options.

innogy is leading the development and construction of Galloper on behalf of its partners the UK Green Investment Bank, Siemens Financial Services, Sumitomo Corporation and Macquarie Capital.
