Annual subsea inspections and maintenance work on a major wind farm off East Anglia have been successfully completed.
Engineering firm CWind — which is part of Chelmsford-based Global Marine Group — carried out this year’s campaign as part of its contract with the 102 turbine East Anglia ONE wind farm, which lies 43km off the coast of Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.
In 2019, CWind was awarded a multi-year contract with ScottishPower Renewables and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group to provide below water services, including subsea inspections of the foundation jackets and offshore substation, corrective maintenance and pre-engineering studies at the site.
