Seaway 7 has awarded Huisman a contract for the delivery of a 3,000mt Spreader Bar. The Spreader Bar will support installation of offshore wind turbines and is able to handle monopiles with the largest diameter and length currently available.

Although the Spreader Bar will be built specifically to Seaway 7’s requirements, it is based on a Huisman design. Seaway 7 will initially employ the Spreader Bar during its execution of the third phase of the Dogger Bank Wind Farm,
Dogger Bank C.

Located off the north-east coast of England, Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being built in three 1.2 GW phases,
Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B, and Dogger Bank C.

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a joint venture partnership between SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%), and Eni (20%). SSE Renewables will to lead on the development and construction of Dogger Bank Wind Farm, and Equinor will operate the asset on completion.  

Once the three phases are complete, the project is expected to generate around 18 TWh annually, enough renewable electricity to supply 5% of the UK’s demand and equivalent to powering six million UK homes.
