Swire Blue Ocean jack-up Pacific Orca has installed half of the 56 Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines at Innogy’s 336MW Galloper offshore wind farm off the Suffolk coast in the UK.

Fred Olsen Windcarrier jack-up Bold Tern is assisting Pacific Orca with the installation work, having been deployed to the site in September.


Bibby Marine Services vessel Wavemaster 1 is also supporting construction of the wind farm, housing some 40 technicians for four-week stints.

The wind farm is scheduled to be fully commissioned in March 2018.
